Rain – Promote Yourself


rainnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

I can hear you making small holes in the silence.

Rain.

If I were deaf the pores of my skin would open to you and shut,

And I should know you by the lick of you.

If I were blind the something special smell you make when the sun cakes the ground,

The steady drum roll sound you make when the wind drops,

But if I should not hear, smell or feel or see you,

You would still define me, disperse me,

Wash over me,

Rain.
