Distant Sreet

Rain whips down the rugged street
under swaying taps,
blowing across my  cold face;
the air smells
of foam, charcoal, and tar.

I hear the chatter of leaves
against a clapping window;
the house is half-lit,
but the silver wind lifts the curtain
shining on drained asphalt.

Tables, lines of sullen people;
eyes blurred in the fogging 
of cut- glass mirrors.
I lean on a  doorway of a kitchen
with chipped jars  and faded pictures.
