SILENT STORM
(9/7/13)


she's
in the manic
stage
of the bipolar
swing

happy

sad

silly

mad

all
at EF5
scale

he can't
keep up

she gets
frustrated
when his responses
don't match
her terrifying
intensity

she feels
as if
he doesn't care
if he's not
apoplectic
as well

he's learned
to keep quiet
and let
the tornado
pass

he'll come
out
of the cellar
of self
when the winds
have settled

pick up
a broom

sweep away
the debris

to see
what's left
of their
home
