after the hurricane

Posted to Poetry

these words wouldn't make it in a b-movie
they just don't have that punch -
the delivery that makes critics awe
and audiences pause in wonder

no... the words here they just flounder
like an unnamed fish on a beach
after a massive hurricane named hector
has wiped out all the sandcastles
built in honor of fantasies with
tiny hands trembling at the possibilities
