Rain Threat

Surely it’s going to rain
because the report says it is
and we all
look anxiously
at the sky

But it isn’t raining
oh my God A CLOUD
A TERRIBLE CLOUD
A—
nope
still not raining
though the wind just blew my hat off

I thought the weather people
had projected a thunderstorm
so where’s all the rain at?
It’s hard to be this anxious
for several hours in a row

It didn’t rain
and I’m relieved
and also disappointed
at the same time
