.storms have names.

1.

storms are predicted

slowly the sign starts moving

we head toward home trees

are down. power gone

dark yet the bones

are showing

the door is open

rattling

2.

we ring the police the line is dead

buttons gone spongy

reduced to mathematics and tying the thing in knots

no dialogue they are out everywhere

trees are down

bones are showing

here

3.

police arrive tree men to mend and repair

on overtime

for

mass calculation

crowd in the house for tea

find there are no pastries offered.

there is nothing in the house.

bones are apparent.
