The Rainiest July

The final totals aren't yet in but, for many Texans, this July has certainly felt a lot wetter than usual. In some cases and in some areas, the weather has been quite severe. That was the inspiration for this Typewriter Rodeo poem.



The Typewriter Rodeo has been featured weekly on the Texas Standard public radio program since 2015. The ideas for poems come from Texas Standard listeners. The audio segment is produced by Texas Standard managing producer Laura Rice.
