Heavy Rain

Panes on the windows
broken by the blessed raindrops
shooting air-holes through
the minds of the transparent
help them see more clearly
the way the world is
letting them breathe
the amniotic fluid
they are unused to
they hate it
and try to hold their breath
not wanting to breathe
not realizing their need
