a woman
a man
a street
an umbrella
a boat

there are so many women in this world
and so many men
and so many streets
and so many raindrops
and so many umbrellas
and so many boats

but how many times do you see
a woman
under the rain
in the middle of a street
with an umbrella
held upside down
brimming with rain water
and a man
waiting on the sidewalk
for the rain to stop
then approaching
to launch a paper boat
on the little lake
contained in an umbrella
held upside down
by a woman
in the middle of a street?
