City after Rain

                    Washington, D.C.

Marble is sticking to wet leaves,

Walls are dripping from ivy,

Pillars drift and become as trees,

Wide rivers of reflected light drown the streets,

The earth rises and the city is less real,

Monuments and memorials

Cling lightly to the air.
