Make Do Rain Turtle

I forgot the umbrella 
so of course, it starts raining 
as we are walking to the bus,
it dumps even harder as we wait.
I pull the polyfill military surplus
“Liner, Wet Weather, Poncho (One Each)” 
 from the bottom of my daypack,
we drape the blanket over our heads and packs
and stand there like a giant, blind mutant 
camouflage turtle 
sorting the passing vehicles by sound.

  1. Wonderful - I can really picture this. Send some rain here if you want, we need it.
