Pleurisy

A rainy day without rain—come the night, the most tentative sprinkles, a tenth-hearted downpour, a single absent-minded snort of thunder—a midnight clammy and unquenched. Global drought grows in Brooklyn. Swampy margins everywhere mobilize to advance on a map-altering summer. Already they’ve turned off the running water in Prospect Park and the rill (listen!) which gushed into the pond in front of the decorative boat house (it's coming!) is gone.
(Whoo!)
Boys tip their toy-like bikes onto the muddy track of leaves it left and go smoke blunts among the rocks where the waterfall fell. Can’t anything stay nice?
