News warns us to expect showers by this afternoon.
And, outside I can already hear the clouds rolling in
Or, maybe it’s just the planes headed south.
And if you listen closely, the only sounds are of heat
and dryness like a rattler crossing the desert.
On the radio last night callers talked
About making soups and pumpkin lattes.
Seriously? We’re still basking in 70 degrees.
I put on my Uggs, but quickly shake them off.
It’ll be a cold day in hell before it rains in California.
