After The Show

After the show
we all rush out
into the rain
laughing from enjoyment
the warmth of the auditorium 
still clinging to our skin.
The rain flecks our faces
and arms
we avoid puddles
or splash right through them.
Soaking hair and sneakers
we pile into the car
our breath fogging the windows
we chatter about which part
we liked best
and run our fingers through our hair
to get the tangles out.
The rain slides over the windshield
and we settle back against our seats
