horizon colorado

Volleys of Lightning

Georgia sings about her father,
and I’m reminded of my grandmother, Georgia,
and how I should call her

Ink drips from my fingertips
Caustic shadow spiderwebbing away from my feet
I step outside to breathe Colorado

On the horizon…

Thunderstorm keep on building
Steady rain for hours and hours
No floods needed,
but a new baptism underneath volleys of lightning
Wash the filth of lesser mentality away
