For the Rain

What does the rain mean
We speak as if the words
are anything
What does the rain mean
endlessly threading its needle
in the country and in the cities
The elbows rest on windowsills
What could the rain mean
if not the punctuation
of the sky
its attempts to focus
where you are going with your thoughts
your terrible thoughts
by inserting this pause
and this green breathing
goodbye
