poem

Levitation Ring

All afternoon there was thunder
out the window the green blue light
but no rain came
we laid on our sides facing each other
eyes look like tropical birds
hearts maybe a cave of shiny stone
the storm that took the neighbor’s house
and scattered it across the fields
is long gone
but in the yellow clouds
there’s no flash of lightning
there’s no face or road or dream
I sell levitation rings for seven dollars
she floats in her sleep for free
I’m an optimist
I should be shot
All the weathervanes do the twist
Just like they did last summer
