February 3*

the week’s forecast:

          rain turning to showers
          cloudy with showers
          clouds with occasional sunbreaks
          clearing (but never quite clear)
          partly cloudy (but no mention of sun!?)
          intermittent rain and drizzle
          steady interminable drowning downpours

add 3 jokers
reshuffle daily and print.

doesn’t matter—
all have an equal chance
by tomorrow
