texas, 1941

crickets flirt over the breeze
rippling through the moon-washed grove
the atmosphere sweet
with sun-ravaged grass
bare feet
over dirt road
move forward
the earth beneath
transmitting
a flash on the horizon
a count of five
the reverberation of air collapsing
the empty space
announces the imminent approach
individual drops
a collaborative cacophony
petrichor
elation
pupil dilation
and the rain comes
