Sunday in the Storm Era


         "these are extraordinary times"
         so we can do whatever we want ha ha

         the sky darkens
               stitching the white pillow cover

               If I had my way I'd sit and watch
         the grey and poundy waves all day ...

             The candle lights for Cypress
        must be down at the channel now
    where the tide rushes out
  from the lagoon and keeps on going out

way out ... remember?

                                                 now the evening sky
                                looks pretty clear
                              was a history
                          just happened
