I wish it would rain

I wish it would rain

The sun keeps beating down
Heat rises from the earth

Every step feels like
wandering further into the witch’s oven

I’ve been out in the heat long enough
that I feel like I should be well baked now

I wish it would rain

The sky is full of clouds
and threatening to pelt us

Staring out the window
with begging eyes

Even if the rain hits and immediately evaporates
it will be better than this

I wish it would rain
