Only in San Diego

it tapped at my memory
two-stepped on my brain
galloped on the rooftop
sprinted down a drain
sometimes a calliope
other times a train

seeped into my nightmare
dallied with my dream
hammered on the skylight
pushed me to a scream
until i figured what it was
i might be hearing


then it seemed
distraught to me
even showed disdain
by skipping up my windshield
and skiing down again
stopped until i walked the dog
fired up again

ruined shoes and
hairdos but you
won’t hear me complain
never mind
the misery
just bring on the rain
