<p>call it the greenhouse effect or whatever

<p>but it just doesn't rain like it used to.

<p>I particularly remember the rains of the

<p>depression era.

<p>there wasn't any money but there was

<p>plenty of rain.

<p>it wouldn't rain for just a night or

<p>a day,

<p>it would RAIN for 7 days and 7

<p>nights

<p>and in Los Angeles the storm drains

<p>weren't built to carry off taht much

<p>water

<p>and the rain came down THICK and

<p>MEAN and

<p>STEADY

<p>and you HEARD it banging against

<p>the roofs and into the ground

<p>waterfalls of it came down

<p>from roofs

<p>and there was HAIL

<p>big ROCKS OF ICE

<p>bombing

<p>exploding smashing into things

<p>and the rain

<p>just wouldn't

<p>STOP

<p>and all the roofs leaked-

<p>dishpans,

<p>cooking pots

<p>were placed all about;

<p>they dripped loudly

<p>and had to be emptied

<p>again and

<p>again.

<p>the rain came up over the street curbings,

<p>across the lawns, climbed up the steps and

<p>entered the houses.

<p>there were mops and bathroom towels,

<p>and the rain often came up through the

<p>toilets:bubbling, brown, crazy,whirling,

<p>and all the old cars stood in the streets,

<p>cars that had problems starting on a

<p>sunny day,

<p>and the jobless men stood

<p>looking out the windows

<p>at the old machines dying

<p>like living things out there.

<p>the jobless men,

<p>failures in a failing time

<p>were imprisoned in their houses with their

<p>wives and children

<p>and their

<p>pets.

<p>the pets refused to go out

<p>and left their waste in

<p>strange places.

<p>the jobless men went mad

<p>confined with

<p>their once beautiful wives.

<p>there were terrible arguments

<p>as notices of foreclosure

<p>fell into the mailbox.

<p>rain and hail, cans of beans,

<p>bread without butter;fried

<p>eggs, boiled eggs, poached

<p>eggs; peanut butter

<p>sandwiches, and an invisible

<p>chicken in every pot.

<p>my father, never a good man

<p>at best, beat my mother

<p>when it rained

<p>as I threw myself

<p>between them,

<p>the legs, the knees, the

<p>screams

<p>until they

<p>seperated.
