BOOM

a distant drum procession in the clouds

approaching band

decorated in glimmering light

rave flickers

wind increase

dust a flyin’

beats n beats n beats 

louder

BOOM

a crack of spotlight hits 

our eyes

blinding

glimmer across the sky

fat water drops fall

splash angrily on

pink concrete

staining the ground

in drip drop splats

until it is all a shining puddle

pool

wadi

flood

flowing

raging

rapids.

BOOM

the electricity goes out

BOOM

the cat disappears 

BOOM 

a crack of lightening claws across the sky like

nails on a chalkboard

shredding it to pieces

breaking night into light

for an instant

what a fright

what an absolute delight

that is right

there’s a thunderstorm 

tonight!
