lenten journal: stormy weather


    it is a dark and stormy
    night the sky is angry
    flashing and bellowing
    yet refusing to dissolve

    into tears and weep its way
    into ushering in the dawn
    our middle schnauzer
    runs under the bed at the

    first sound of thunder
    I’m typing in the dark
    to better see the light show
    trying to beat the deadline

    imposed by my itchy eyes
    and generic antihistamines
    that aren’t keeping promises
    any better than the lightning
