My First Poem

The rain.

The rain fell.

Like an awkward child tripping in the schoolyard and cracking a tooth.

The rain fell and washed away -

- the debris of the last rainstorm.

The rain – oh, wait.

My toast popped.

I’ll be back.

Where was I?

Oh yes, the rain.

Mmmmm. Butter.

Man, this is good toast.
