It rained today. It rained last Wednesday as well. By the time 4:45 rolled around the rain had mostly stopped, just a slight trickle and a runoff from the roads and gutters. I heard the traffic light change twice this time, stillness when it was red, cars rolling through rain when it was green. A few more ambulances, I’m just waiting for the entire 4:45 to be sirens. There’s a bird I can’t identify, it’s song is sharp and melodic like a cardinal but.. I’ve never seen a cardinal here. I like how the not-cardinal sounds against the distance ambulances.
