Car and Raindrops

 I call this style "word collage," though if anyone knows the actual term, let me know.  The last time I did something like this was in 2010 (http://poemsbygreg.blogspot.com/2010/12/smoldered.html)  Previously I have used this style for confusion and complexity, but today's instead focuses on shaping.  .  

I wanted to make it longer, but there isn't much to say about falling rain.
