The Man Outside the Window

the man outside the window
standing in the rain
with his shorts, orange wand

can't see the lush green land
that drops into the river.

the illuminated sign
confirms anxiety,
once more beckons change,
instills hope along with a vision
of the next offspring embrace.

how many promises,
how many pressures,
how many propositions
earn a tally mark
that suggest fulfillment?

the Sap in The Jar of Flies
sends peculiar messages.
