Her umbrella slaughters the rain for her;
her child skips ahead into the slurred oblivion,
the circular train completing its round;
“Come here! Watch the crossing!” she shouts.
The shit is knee-deep.
Two canoes from the hell arrive to the paradise of kissing.
In the embrace of the lovers rain remains inclusive.
“Come here!” shouts a mother already late for tomorrow.
