A chance of rain

This weather reminds me
of Cape May in June,
two years ago,
when it rained for a month straight.
The skeletons of sea creatures
still take up space
in the trunk of my Chevy.
I collected as many as my greedy hands (and feet)
could carry, as if I had found
hidden treasure at Higbee Beach.
But I lost you,
that small thing
I couldn't manage to hold onto.
