makes everything 
less exact. 

In the haze of its falling, 
faraway birds
turn ellipses 

as if newly unsure 
of the depth 
of the air. 

many city dwellers 
curse and fear 

not just the loss 
of accessible paths,

but how indiscriminate 
precipitation's verdict is—

how equitably 
its capricious largess 
is bestowed.

Nevertheless, there are 
fortunes to be made yet
in mining the gap 

between what 
each majestic 
fresh blanket is worth 

and how much 
it seems to cost.
