According to the Weatherman

*Written for day 21 of the PAD challenge. Prompt "According to (blank)".

we're due for rain again, and
with it all the truck of

raincoats and boots and
sopping socks, the wayward

wind blowing the umbrellas
backwards--you see them,

abandoned, in a huff, at the
side of the road, when only a little

patience could set them right.
I don't need a weatherman to

know what way the wind blows---
I watch it in your eyes, those

hurricanes brewing up, thick-
barreled, carrying away the cattle
