The Rain

Closer by the rain

The rain is an advertising exec
and not content with cold-calling
is at my window
with a thousand glittering eyes the rain
is an advertising exec and
has mastered photoshop and monochromed
the horizon and the slate roofs
closer by the rain is
an advertising exec hustling the public
into shops an advertising exec and his products
glisten insistently his work
is everywhere in this city
gilding in grey every poster
and notice-board and
is covering me inside and out.
