Clio

November 15, 2011

When baby came from up top she twistered
her fingers round the wrought iron like cat’s

claw. She yelled down to her brother
Clarence making groceries get me something

from the store big shot a pie what not.
He hollered back took up the block and then

the rain broke. When it broke it filled
the gutters and ran down the pipes

whooshed out to street. Only just two clouds
so quick they formed up above and so quick

they broke way. There they used to be Clio thought
and how’s it two tiny little things

made so much noise and now be gone and
here I am left with this just quiet.
