One Kind of Rain

“The devil’s beating his wife,” mother drawls,

leaning over the rain-dusted windowsill

when yellow sun slices silver

and a breeze blows sudden as a barroom brawl . . .

–excerpt from “One Kind of Rain” in Jumping Off the Train by Donna Pucciani (Orchard House Press, Washington 2007). First published in Coffee House.
