things i saw and heard in the rain: half rainbow over woman in a petticoat lowering her umbrella in the shower, cyclists, the cover of the brother's karamazov used as a book mark, wavy brown hair held back by shiny bobby pins, a kiss-me-i'm-valerie shirt ("What's your name?" "Valerie" "Funny you finding that shirt"), two men in orange shirts sitting next to one another, "Ah, so you're a generalist. You want to know what's going on and how we got here", "you're a triple seven, that's high spiritual, high consciousness", "I bet your walls are lined with bookcases", austinites cozied up together under the covered patio of spiderhouse - uncle tupelo playing, woman with pink hair and a truckers cap tranquilly sitting in the rain holding two dachshunds, a cell phone disguised as an austin chronicle, the ringing of the aforementioned cell phone, "Are you here for the puppet show?", "I feel like I've won something!", dachshunds barking at orange and white cat, a puppet show whose main character was a hermaphrodite, trees ever-crisp and alive in the rain.
I feel like I've won something, too.
