Every Time It Rains

from by Mark Lenover



Every time it rains
your skin gets thicker
And when you shut your eyes
the old spit turns
The movement gets you high
and your blood gets thicker
Then you focus on the lights
until the switch gets pulled
Every time it rains
your eyes get redder
While you’re chomping at the bit
the rocks get cold

Every time you need
your head gets lighter
You lick the counter clean
then you hit the bricks
Your eyes are all awash
in a blood-cloud flicker
The clots are catching up
and the coals get hid
Every time it rains
your blood runs colder
You try to find a vein
where the black fog sits
They catch you up again
just to kick you sober
Every time it rains
the clouds cave in
