A Late October Rain

The rain, in hard form, beat against

the window

of their downstairs bedroom

and they hoped the Chocolate Lab,

asleep on his bed

next to them,

would hear it and decide that he

didn’t need to go

out to take a pee

anytime soon and that way they all

could sleep a little longer.

It was so nice in the comfort

of the bed

snuggling together while October

tapped percussively


that November

was but a day away.
