The weather in Joburg
Soft & insecure
Like an acoustic guitar
Played out of tune…
Seductive love notes
Twing-twang sounds
Seducing the weatherman’s wife
Above the clouds

Like a maiden’s skirt
Hairs & heiresses undressed…
Naked thoughts billowing in the sky
Pure fantasy

Unsure-footed
Safe & insecure
Like a night dress of satin
Love is midnight
Ocean deep out of sight

Who cares about the weather?
I do
Free fall non-committal
Sensuous without nuptials

Autumn rain out of season
Morning shower

All rain but no thunder
