It's midnight downtown.
It's been raining for days
Rain beats down.
It covers the streets with its sparkling skin.
In the deli purple light
A woman in a party dress pays for some milk
Yellow cab stops for a light
Two men in black hats are running
A messenger on a bike
Steam rises, covers the city.
Pieces of old newspaper float like paper boats
They slide along the rushing water in the gutter.
Rainy days. Rainy nights.
Rain falls down and covers the city
It falls from fabulous heights.
Covers the streets with its sparkling skin.
