'We would hold back until the sky / was fuming black with clouds / swollen to bursting aboce us, / until the air turned to a lush / flourescent violet, thickened / with the scent of certain rain, / until a rockslide of thunder / trembled the leaves / of lilac bushes, before / my brother and I would leap / into the street . . .'--from Rain Dance.
