swamp cooler

probably blow low-vent all night, rain-smell coming in.
no need for pumping water pump, little motor whirring,
always seeming on the verge of breakdown.

cat hiding under the car in the drive,
waiting for the slim possibility of a second supper.
no hunting sparrows or mice in this weather.

hummingbirds braving the spattering rain,
sipping from birds of paradise before sunset.

boys with basketballs under their arms,
standing at windows, watching the clouds.
