Things We Said in the Storm 

The sky’s a hurry-cane scrim,
but we’re still scribbling light
-ning above the din. 

We promised ourselves we 
wouldn’t hide, even as the 
cloud cauldron stirred. 

And when we thought we might run 
out of time

we plucked our own feathers 
to write these lines. 


In November, we poem.
