Rainstorm At The Elementary School.

Added on by Sean Pecknold.

There was a rainstorm in LA, in Chinatown. The lightning was real bright and flashy. An old woman just walked by the window as she does everyday around 3pm. She always wears a pink jacket. It takes her about 2 minutes to walk all the way past my window. i wonder what she does during the day. Maybe she just sits in a chair and thinks about her life. Maybe she is content. Maybe she thinks about the time she was in love and it felt great. But then maybe she is just thinking about how birds fly. Or about the sounds of the neighborhood kids at the elementary school, laughing and teasing each other. They are so young, and can run so fast. But she has a walker now, and can move only 30 ft, in about 2-3 minutes.
