November: Cape Town

by Kerry Hammerton

Rain flutters on street corners
blurs the light thrown down

by yellow street lamps, hushes cars
as they beetle their way home.

Frogs bark their joy into the greyed-in
sky. Puddles accumulate water

in a steady dah dah dah of sounds
that echo the raindrops on my roof.

I am waiting for the weather to ease,
for the sky to open, for the storm

in me to break.
