Friday, August 7, 2009: Quoted from: Matt Duffin—Fine Art


Dark mornings, puddles,
The squeak of rubber against elementary school linoleum

The surge of rainwater
Unleashed from buses and large cars

During rainy trudges to school
You were warned to step back from the black, shiny road

By the wavelike whoosh
A hushed crash that could drench the hems of trousers

If it weren’t for the galoshes
Those boots reversed everything—shoes over pants,

Morning dim as evening,
Water unfurling from the ground, rain upside-down
