I know a storm’s coming

because there’s so much static on the line
that I can hardly hear your voice.
Everything I touch explodes
and the clouds are pressing down
on every roof of every house.

I’m worn dumb with waiting,
and the sky is swollen
like a bruise.

A quadrille for Mish at dVerse. Our word is “static”.

    and “the sky is swollen like a bruise”
    Oh what amazing imagery you’ve portrayed here. And just the word “pressing”….I can actually feel this poem.
