TORNADO WARNING
(3/26/15)


the sirens
followed us home
yesterday afternoon

keeping us
from our
dinners

rain
hail
high winds
and an eerie
darkness
surrounded
the city

when
the sky cleared
only one person
was dead

he died
a few miles away
as I was looking
out
a window
wondering
how much cleanup
there would be
the next day

he was probably
looking out
and wondering
much the same

until his wonder
suddenly ceased

the home
next to his
was undamaged

but there
was
a pretty big
mess
in their yard
