Yolanda: A Typhoon

How much our hands are God's

to be running fingers over braille cities.

We are this hand pushed through our womb.

Weeping with each other's blood in our eyes.

I dreamed that I slept with the light on.

I was asleep in my mother's bed because my father was out to sea

and my claim on him was to feel the frets of my death sure to come.

Sweet, small fishing rod. Ears of wind rushing through many jellied trees.

We were on this cardboard earth with its puffing volcanoes

miniature baseball players and horrible winds

scored by musician's hands.

Stand in the strong ear of this love.

I think most of the intent was lost on me, but I liked the style. Thanks for sharing, Sarah
