We drive home in the rain
the evening sun behind us
turns the dark clouds purple
like bruises

you spot it first
as clear as if it had been drawn with felts
and it makes me so happy
I honk at a stranger
in the car beside us
and point energetically to the sky

she smiles
and then the light turns green
so I roll down the window
and you yell


in case she thought
we were just being friendly

you ask me
how it got there
and I tell you it happens
when there is rain and sun
at the same time

in bed later that night
I hear you tell bunny
that if you mix
sun and water
you get stripes.
