A boring day in 1987The rain poured heavily on the tin roof of our house as I stare out the window watching the little rain droplets slowly make their way down to the windowsill, paying not a single bit of attention to the lightning brightening the evening sky. I just sit there, bored out of my mind, wishing I could go out and play in the rain. But I know what my parents would say... a big, fat, NO.

Let the sparrows in; let
Let the door's
loosen—let the door stand ajar
be let open
the night owls and
let the doves
in pairs in the iridescent
Let the sparrows in.
