And we don't mind the rain

the last white bird in the rain
is not looking for a shelter
as it flies in auto pilot
the men in yellow hats
hanging high from the scaffolding
are fearless too
the cars with red tops
and blue tops and white tops
sleep silent in the car lot
and i with the eyes of a man
calm from last night's sleep
stand at the window


we are all happy where we are
and we don't mind the rain.
