Poem of the Month

Atmospheric Disturbance

Full moon seeps through skylights,
illuminates squinty possums,
instigates arthritic agony,
keeps us tossing and turning.

In silent kitchen--chilly shadows.
Power failure extinguishes civilization,
leaves us with useless coffee pot,
cold cookware, shivery breakfast.

Revolutionary rumblings
thunder from hysterical headlines.
Tile floor crawls with displaced refugees,
proliferating dark ant invasion.

Outside, impaled oak tree saplings convulse
upon their stakes, animated by slashing wind,
atmospheric river, bouncing pellets
of white, frozen rain.
