a sliver of light and i'm awake too early but there it is the day waiting for me raising the blind i see an iffy sky a stained canopy streaked with the tints of a halfhealed bruise
if those promising glints of gold manage to overpower the ominous slate it might yet fair up nicely but there's no telling at this point my powers of meteorological prediction are not noted for their accuracy
sighing i turn away and hunt for iffy day clothes which is no stretch because i've led an iffy life my wardrobe is proof against any and all contingencies
jammed into drawers and closets is a phantasmagoria of costumery an a to z of the motheaten to the glamorous none of it sorted since i'm a lazy jackdaw so every day is a scavenger hunt for appropriate habiliments
digging in a drawer where i think i'll find suitably iffy garments i pull out a scruffy sweater and suddenly it's seven years ago because lurking underneath is the silverblue silk shirt i was wearing when we met and haven't worn since you left
and isn't love just like that iffy sky out there unpredictable clouds easily whipped into a storm by prevailing hormones from the south fool's gold inevitably fading into gray and the rain is salt tears that taste like smoke and betrayal
i don't dress for love anymore my powers of emotional prediction are not noted for their accuracy i pick up that shirt and rip it to shreds just as the rain begins splatting a mocking tattoo against the panes ~ copyright 2017 RC deWinter
Rain or shine? It's hard to tell from this autumn morning sky over Lake Superior at Grand Marais, Minnesota.
