I remember the rain

I was drinking, I knew that
in the dorm, maybe at a bar
wearing a grey corduroy jacket
how many I don’t remember
too many I’m sure

getting there somehow
standing on the jetty
in the pitch blackness
the tide coming in
crashing on my footsteps

I remember the rain
splashing on my face
only then the silence
waking in my bed 

I don’t know how I lived
how I got off the jetty
the tide coming in
in the middle of the storm
