Todd Pederson is the next poet in the series "What Light: This Week's Poem," a feature sponsored by Magers and Quinn Booksellers that brings you a poem every week by a Minnesota poet, selected by a panel of writers and publishers.

Intimacy with Rain and Marlon Brando

An urge we ride like the weather
—its spate and canto—backlit
by 2:00 am television and Brando’s
steamy deportment
in A Streetcar Named Desire.
