Weeds grow where they want to; not where they're told to...


Andrew Button

After the Rain



the aroma pervades your bathroom.

It’s in the froth around the plug hole.

In the fibres of the towel,

the lather of soap

and the skin on my hands.

Finding the bottle

I discover its name:

After the Rain.



I see a thumbed copy

of The Art of Happiness

on your bookshelf.

Hear words like half and full

persistent as moles

surfacing from your mouth

and find myself raising a glass

to your sunshine

like a dry day in a wet town.
