Go Meet Them on the Square

by Gerburg Garmann


Go meet them on
the square where –
That’s the magic of
the briefest moment when –
Such small feet
play the rain to –
There is something about
the rain.  Some pearls.
Some square innocence.
Then some more.
By threading drop
after drop after –
people could get at least
as far as the wet bird on
the next-door neighbor’s wire.
