big storm

years ago, when i was little- before there were so many rules and regulations, i used to lay in the back of our station wagon for long rides....

the way back

coming home on a rainy night-
making marks on the rear window
with my toes.

the rain streaks in reds and yellows
and plinks
on the roof.

my dad calls my name
and i flip up-
look into the rearview mirror

"do you see the moon?"

"uh huh"

"keep lookin' janniebean,
its good luck
if it follows you home."
