Breakdancing Rain

Clattering on rooftop
all hurly-burly & counterpoint
a pitter-patter of splash
overflowing gutters & spouts
like liquid rebel,
undaunted by pale constraints
of time or rhythm, laughing to
fickle swells of storm und drang,
slave to mercurial downpour,
scatting the happy jazz
of strange time signature
then splishing, sploshing,
in lockstep buoyance
as though performing
for small street corner crowd.
