a steady drizzle of days
and hung-up
waiting for a future
to arrive
only more of the same
cold rain
and the circles the drops make
in the puddles
like hand-cuffs
to stick my wrists into
to keep from cutting.

Arresting image and theme..... circles and handcuffs and restraint, the cool of the water.
