Loved by All Nature

From his vantage he could see
Ones go by quickly, kicking up rain
Twos more slowly, holding hands
Threes or more standing ground, leaning  in feigned ease

The wind hissed
and for a moment made the rain walk sideways
Pelting the faces of pedestrians, the ones, twos, and threes or more
Exhausting, satisfying, but to little effect
(No one died, not even a cold the next day)

The October wind sighed
If only they knew

how he hated them

The wet sidewalk shined on like cheap plastic,
fracturing light, making wavy imitations
