They’re Not Mannequins

The sky swung on streams of light and dark

Reflected in quickly moving smashed glass

Sticking into tumbling tree limbs

The rumbling of thunder

Blowing up hope.

There was no escape.

The wild winds whipping through cluttered streets

Blowing away the man and his castle

The woman and child

A storm as wild and as big

As the State itself.

The sea was above us

Deadly rivers below

Trapping people in their cars

Horns sounding like a tortuous challenge

To our already shattered souls.

Poles and cables smashed and crackled a deadly welcome

For the unsuspecting

Wading through the water

To the dead and living,

And then it was done.

No home, no money

Funerals

Nowhere to bury,

Century old graves washed away

Corpses smothered in mud and dirt

Exposed by nature

After all these years.

Then came the outstretched hand

Promising it would go

To those in need

Begging other States to help the helpless

And that politician smirk when the checks arrive.

Let the dead bury the dead

I could use that money for some call girls

in DC

And on it goes

A never ending tempest

A never ending glimpse of hell.
