The jagged edge of lightning pricks the sky. The
Clouds explode with vociferous clapping as
Rain heaves on the torrid pavement.
Thunder groans as the
Roofs sigh from the sudden weight of the
Uneasy sky. The sluggish drains regurgitate.
Dragged indoors are the weary workers, incapable this
Evening of a summer stroll. The parking lots
Belch from overfeeding. Black tires
Plow asphalt fields. No dust settles.
There is none.
The sky gargles with electricity.
Horizon ran away.
