a teasing rain

corn-1408154_960_720a teasing rain is looming
a lingering loitering drop
dangles dramatically
in mid-air
then ever-so slowly
plops
it lands on
jimmy’s baldness
it ricochets
in pieces
but hours will pass
before at last
the storm cloud
team releases
all the other raindrops
all the other plops
jimmy needs a deluge
to quench his thirsty crops
