Don't let the sun go down on me

It rains on Southampton as the kids pack up their cars for the last time from this place, carry boxes and cartons as their rooms lose color and texture. It rained on Move-In Day, too, water plastering the cheap ponchos to our skin as we raced from building to building, room folders held close, trying to keep cool. Rain like there was something the sky wanted to forget.

Whoa. WHOA. I think sky gods knew that he wanted us to forget these children.

Lovely piece of writing, though. :P
