It's Still a Cave - Oct. 14, 2022

if you’re

still afraid a thunderstorm

is an angry god

who throws bolts

pounds his chest

and doors

lamps for torches

were you run and hide


and still peek

very carefully

to see if it’s over

in case he turns around

and sees you


and fires one parting

shot of fury
