Stormy

the sky becomes an eye studying itself
and the housetops fail to hold on:
the solitary morning jogger rushes
upward, where the sky foams
and a sky-blue eagle soars

drip-dried TV screens are throbbing
in despair, the girl's cheek is
moist, a bloody tear
crowns the fiesta of the lost,
and you are nowhere to be found

there are no erogenous zones, no naive
dreamworks to walk the ocean
shoreline, no thickened betrayal
beating against the seven o'clock
mirror

take a look: the sun strikes up again
like one more cigarette in a bar on the
outskirts of another city, in a different
country, along other
avenues the wind has not roughed up

and you are nowhere to be found:
the drapery flattened, live
mannequins stare at life across
a glass bay, where a city drifts by
like a vast armada deprived of mast and sail


I wrote this as the as Louisiana.was feeling the torents, of the storm I lived very near there in Arkansas,and have friends who lost alot it took me a long time to bring this to print!
the poem is not for the loss of a human woman, it's ment for my fair lady Louisiana
