SPOILED

it smells like beer
and the rain is starting
and the guitar is strumming
hard like my heart against
my chest
when the words slipped free
of the gap in my teeth
and the sky was thick like
velvet
and my umbrella was leaning
against my chair
a possibility
open and inviting;
i let the drops spoil the page
and kept writing.

    Love this! It leaves me wanting more. I would love to know more about what’s being written and the feelings of the narrator. Great way to end.

    Wonderful moment and also your feelings at that moment -- with an openness to the rain.
