4 rain, rain



dear chicago, we've hit a rough patch.

because it has been foggy and rainy and gray for as long as i can remember and it has rained every day for the last four years. at least.

and that's not even hyperbole. it's total truth.

this is coming on the heels of the worst winter of all time where we were alternately unseasonably cold, unseasonably warm, unreasonably snowy and then the sky threw up on us.

chicago, i love you, but you're being a bastard.

it's been raining FOREVER. that soupy rain where you can't see the tops of the skyscrapers, and that simply will not do. us girls in the city, we need our skyline.

"And then the sky threw up on us."

1.) This needs to be the title of of a poem, and also the title of the book of poems in which it is collected.

2.) I, too, cannot remember a day when it did not rain.

that statement is pure jmills. i lifted it and take no credit.

and i'm glad i'm not the only one. i heard there was one nice day, but i was in new york, where it was raining, at the time.
