THICKNESS OF DAY

The clouds are thick
today, each merging
into the next like
an ill-woven blanket,
stitches dropped, but still
not admitting light.
None assumes familiar shapes,
none require more
than a passing glance,
though none promise
much-needed rain.
Today clouds simply
cast a pall and we
are left to bear
their omnipresent
reluctance to be of use.
