NY Umbrella Day

by Leslie Dianne

On this ny umbrella day
the sky glooms
and threatens
to change my mood
so I wear yellow
and red shoes
and a sunset
orange dress
I let the drops
frizz my hair
and I puddle
the day
I live for hours
in my own fluffy
cloud of kink
my head as
big as the moon
and above
a thin haze, vapor
and sun form
a perfect rainbow
guiding me home
