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
