It’s a rainy Friday night.
I made my favorite down home meal
(Ackee and Saltfish)
Lit my candles,
Took a bath.

Laid in my baby’s bed to comfort him,
Listened to some Sade.
Listened to the rain pouring outside my window.
Wrote a poem.

Rainy days are for lovers…
I don’t ever enjoy them.
But today,
This rainy day was a good day.
