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
the devil is beating his wife
pineapple rain
the monkey's wedding
the wolf is giving birth.
