i looked out the window everyone had umbrellas and smiles on their faces men with suits were walking with briefcases stepping in the puddles, sticking out their tongues and looking toward the sky, catching raindrops on their tongues. an executive type had a little girl. long blonde hair, yellow rubber rainboots, a blue checked dress. she was holding onto his hand. i could barely comprehend, but i could read her lips. she asked why. he picked her up, swung her to the sky and i could see what he was saying, "i ran out of pills, i lost all my cash with mistakes. she left you with me, let's just be free and indecisive with our choices. let's let ourselves escape from everything, do nothing but catch the rain." she jumped in a puddle and giggled aimlessly. everyone in the streets had left their minds in the puddles beneath them. it's exactly everything i've wanted.
