Sun Shower.

It started raining this afternoon
while the sun was shining.

I ran outside
in the hopes of seeing a rainbow.

The pavement under my bare feet
was damp,
but still hot
from the long day.

And of course,
all I could think about
as I vainly searched the grey clouds
for some sign of a rainbow
was all the names for sun showers
that you learn in dialect quizzes
like
the devil is beating his wife
and
pineapple rain
and
the monkey's wedding
and
the wolf is giving birth.
