Part Storm

Right now there is more thunder than rain,

though occasionally a bright spark of lightning

seems to top the window. I cannot

make myself switch on the light, but I open

the shutters to admit the gray sky over

my neighbors’ houses. The dog

lays under the table half-cowering, half-asleep.
