Tension filled

Water brimming

The air begins to pulse with electricity

The energy that precedes violence

Come rain, wash out the lines of grime

Fill the gutters with spite and discarded life

Come rain! Save us from the stagnant heat

Trapped in clothes, fibres of our beings

Offering a cool release from our strife

I offer my face to the heavens to receive

With eyes closed and arms outstretched

The dots begin to dot my face

Cold

Harsh

Straight.
