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.
