1. Giants and Dominoes

The giants roll past us like kings of the trail,

and the rain keeps coming,

                                      splashing our sides,

                                                                drowning our backs.

Halt.

       Once again.

                   And every creature comes to a stop.

                                                                      Like Dominoes.

 

               Suddenly we're in a stampede

Racing towards the city

                           our bodies carrying us as fast as they can.

We look across the line and see it in their eyes;

                                                                           Hope.

 

The runts of the litter               pip to keep up

their bodies straining against the

                                                  ever

                                                          falling

                                                                    rain.

One king, red and white,

                              slows to investigate our line,

                                                                  then storms on.

 

A respectful giant,

older than the rest

            lingers in the middle lane

like a lowly cow enjoying it's last few years.

 

Two bulls charge past from behind,

                                                     yet it does not falter.

 

Finally,

slowly but surely,

we crawl into the city...
