Weather Report:
Marshy Creatures Crawl From Dark Places

Oy, it’s a three-day stretch of nothing but rain and relentless grey skies. The streets are soaked, curbsides spilling over with a dark and sludgy mix of rain water, soot, dust and pollen. Marshy creatures crawl from dark places–a giant frog here, an earthworm there, a battalion of snails marching slow and steady across a slab of concrete encrusted with jewel-like stones and broken glass.

I thought something like Bob Mould’s Black Sheets of Rain might have been appropriate but it’s too early in the morning for 90′s grunge, so I’m going with this classic 10KM track – “by the force of will my lungs are filled, and so I breathe.” Indeed.

Watch your step today, sidewalkers. Share the road with our marshy creatures!
