beliefs (1)

In the first house, this was the easy way to tell if it was raining:

stand in front of window, reasonable distance
focus both eyes on the barn falling apart across the street
rain drops pressed against background of darkness popped immediately and
I knew their speed, slant, worth.

You grow up. Then you start doing the same, pressing yourself to things
from the other side of the street/wall/scene. A reasonable-sudden-unreasonable
distance. Ghosts ain't weather. The wrong starts.
