Does It? – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“The sound of rain needs no translation.” Alan Watts

Does It?

Does it rain in the city
like it rains in the countryside,
where the organic myth has taken hold,
and rain is more rain than anywhere?

But that is merely a parochial opinion,
though the man at the bus stop has
a bag over his head and no coat,
and he is slowly being drenched
in his obvious denial.

Rain is rain on any plain,
or so it is widely held,
even so, it is felt differently and
without a lie, it rains in the city,
but is it real like the rain in the 
country where the sky is open?
