it rains heavily in downtown, the water slides fast downhill. the reflection of the neon lights in the wet pavement, the smoke coming out the drains, the ultimate urban environment cliche ever. and the silence of a city that has gone to sleep a while ago, a dark cat hides behind a box in the corner of the alley, the smell of the humid environment. i heading home. but i want to arrive wet today. so i close my umbrella and let the rain drops hit me. i slow down. i’ll take my time.
