To Be Healed

sometimes, under the rain is light

no common cloud can defeat

we drink beer with the old boys 

while deer shift gears 

in the forest behind the fences

where coyotes take to chase

the secret is we don’t know 

the secret, that it’s happening

and if you remember well at all

the healing whiskey of winter nights

you didn’t have enough to be healed

under the rain, light tricks us every time 

making ticks blend into skin

and skin blend into the forest
