Dear Stranger,

 

People are scattering from this street, like rain hitting the pavement during a summer storm.

 

you stand, face turned up to the heavens.

 

I watch a raindrop trace a path down your cheek and I imagine my fingers in its place.

 

Brushing the angles of your jaw, committing it to memory, so I can trace it out onto paper with my pencil.

 

- A poem I didn’t know how to finish
