ricochets

by James Morehead

sometimes
between time
sleeping children dream and
rain creeps in
a slow percussive blend
of ricochets
carelessly dangling over tiles
into troughs
and coupled spouts
down slick pools gathering in moonlit pavement
pulling
           catching
                         a discarded note
its forgotten message stained into swirling texture

streams drink more streams
confident joining
with runoffs swift
(soon raging)
toward pacific’s bay and moon pulled tides
