Poem – Summer storm – Shawn L. Bird

This air is thick enough to drown inWading through your wordsLightning flashes in the hills like myanxiety after the press conference.Summer storm raging.They announce back to school plans.I’m watching the hills for forest fires,fearing the burning.Brief respite: rain splatters on the back deck,before oppression descends again,and our power goes out. at: https://shawnbird.com/
