Heat #91

by

Soon, five or ten or a hundred people are shouting "Rain!" and many of them stand with their heads thrown back and their mouths wide open, their arms spread out to both sides as if mimicking a crucifixion.
Or practicing a sacrifice.
Warm rain falls and open mouths cheer, and even when it falls hard, its giant drops hammering painfully into hot welcoming faces, all people do is shield their eyes and grin at one another as it soaks them.
Thunder roars and lightning flashes above them, the downpour is torrential now as a few whisper thanks for answered prayers
