Saturday Night Rain

Saturday night after a long, sleepy day. I'm out of cat food and I was two minutes too late when I got the the store. Could ride my bike to the 24 hour place, but now, it rains.

Just watching the rain fall in heavy sheets in front of the streetlights, falling from way up above. I've never thought much about it, only watched the drops that I can see. It's so strange, all this water falling from an unseen ceiling. Just plain falling out of the sky.

Last night we closed up Reposado's patio after too much tequila and beer. I've found myself surrounded by an international crowd these past couple years, most of the folks in my life are from various other countries, with various other accents and languages. Yesterday's crowd was American and Irish, quite very Irish actually.

Put my shoes on beside Piggy, and began humming his song. This song has always been Piggy's song.

I lost myself on a cool damp night
I gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
Under a lilac tree
I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see
and be what I want to be
When I think more than I want to think
I do things I never should do
I drink much more than I ought to drink
Because it brings me back you...
