It’s been raining for days where I live…

Invulnerability of Rain Boots

Landmine puddles sprawl across sidewalk and asphalt

stirred up silt making equal

an inch

or a foot of rainwater, to sudden sodden surprise

water seeping slowly into cloth or leather

dampening socks and spirits alike

but the rubbery stomp

of rain boots slide through shallow and deep alike

parting the waters graceful as a ship’s prow



with warm and dry soles sheltered inside


About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
