Assorted Rain Drops

by Lucas A. Gerber

1.
Before
I
fall
I
want
to
tell
you
a
sec-
ret
about

2.

There
are
mo-
ments
when
I
look
up
and
forget
I
am
fall-
ing

3.

Tell
me
why
there
is
gra-
vi-
ty
I
shout
into
the
clouds

4.

I
bump
into
ano-
ther
drop-
let
and
we
are
one
We
will
splash
together

    I enjoyed this. I’m not usually a fan of sight poems, but the skinny column
    makes the reader want to fall down the page with the words. And there
    is still plenty to treasure if one heard this at a reading.
