the dark drops on suddenly – August 17

8.17.2015

the dark drops on

suddenly, rain fast

behind, the taste

of ozone metallic

in our mouths.

 

we close the drapes

to hunker down

with books and

a cuppa, weather

central near to

hand.

 

threat hangs

pregnant.

 

nothing yet

but just you wait.
