Rain

The rains lash against the window pane
The glass shatters
Water pours into the room
The young child screams
The old grandmother hallucinates
Admonishes the child to be silent
The Gods are showering their blessings
On the poor household she says
The child screams louder
To be heard despite the rain
The grandmother menacingly lifts her cane
As if to strike the child
There is a loud thud
The ceiling caves in
Both grandmother and child
Are quieted forever
