red rains of oblivion

lightning rips tears the dull blue curtain of sky
with a white booming crashing flash
rain leaps from the evil clouds emptying
their heaviness with a rhythm of musical sound
water dirty with the residue and blood of the city
rolls toward the rusting grate of escape
tunneling under the hot and cooling asphalt
disgorging in a plume of filthy foam into the
swirling raging angry muddy river
riding the bits of discarded humanity
into the sea carrying a sodden bit of life
that was once loved to a watery grave

red rains of oblivion
