& the rain continues

The painter should not paint what he sees, but what will be seen.

— Paul Valéry, Mauvaises Pensées et Autres

& the rain continues
shifting & silent
in whose icy showers
the lovers look for love in metabolic limbo

making their way
near the grave & humming spirits
empathy is dying
 
beneath the silent shadow

& a ticking clock of bones
they caress bitter leeches
below the water
& under the waking willows
