sleek

Midnight.
The sudden rain has cooled the streets
and evaporated
except under trees
where the cooling shadows of afternoon
saved the dark moisture.
Negative of the immediate effect of rain:
wet everywhere but under the trees.

Tires hum
streetlights cast a warm mercury pallor
oncoming headlights radiate on the windshield
we prowl the sleek streets
searching for home.
