gray blanket drips down

dampening most sight and sound

just the beer-truck* goes

*(An overcast and drippy evening and early morning remains mightily trying to cast gloom…but then, behold! A fire-engine red diesel tractor-trailer comes past in its familiar white accents, pulling a U-turn at the confluence of Commercial Street and Palmetto Avenue just before my usual waiting-to-open perch at the Sanford branch of the Seminole County (Fla.) library. Still, I would have like to have seen Clydesdales and the old-timey wagon with the grease bucket a-sway just above the rear axle and the ever-over-present Dalmation.)
