DISTANT THUNDER
(7/17/14)


sometimes
the most
ominous of portents
can also be
a gratefully welcomed
possibility

a rumbling
in the western sky
on a sweltering
night
in July
means only
needed rain

needed
coolness

needed
sanity

a vibrating phone
however
is always
another matter

a people strike
always
leaves a scar
