Outside, yellow cubes fill the sky.
Inside I make myself a hot drink.
It grows cold while I watch the rain.
I empty my mug into the sink.
I cannot stay indoors today
When I could be out in my coat.
Though if it carries on like this,
Pretty soon I will need a boat.
Out in the deluge I hide inside my coat,
It’s a modified duffel with a second hood.
Which I use to catch falling pineapple
To eat inside while I watch the fruit flood.
