But I Wouldn’t Wish It On Anyone

If I could
I would tornado
around this town

You’d be better off
inside the eye of me

It would be on a Monday
and I would hold no regard
for pleasantries
for once

My answer to all the trivial
questions I am asked on a typical
Monday over and over and over again
would be answered only by
teeth-shattering wind

and the loudest
goddamned silence
you have ever heard

that would be my wish,
with all due respect
to Mondays

In a rusty-visioned chaos
I would be unable to open my
mouth for fear of shattered
teeth and cinnamon lung
A perfect storm of sand and Zen
would overcome us all
and I would
selfishly be
grateful
for it

for Monday
would be quiet
for once

and no one would
be talking about
the weather

just stunned

    1. Thank you, Robin!

      I’m honestly kind of worried that it isn’t PC (but who’s to say!), considering all the tornadoes in the south and midwest right now, including fatalities. I just want to be clear that this is poetry, it’s just a loose interpretation of the world around me and my (sometimes outrageous) feelings. I would by no means actually wish a natural disaster on the community that I live in.

      🙂

  1. Terah! once again, you’ve done it…perfect! I sure love your stuff 🙂 Thanks for sharing….

    Happy almost Full Moon!
