Being All Together

Thunder.

darkening light scatters

the others running for cover; concern about getting wet, about death

At this sunset, the air

electric mist rolling through the woods, anticipation

squares of light illuminate

the kitchen, then the dining room, then the living room

entertaining shadows flicker like film

“Wait” whisper

rain touching caring drops

“we must go in; lightening is coming! if it strikes we will be dead”

“lets make love here, imminent; the grass is moist, this moment, this storm”

Down into the wet blades, shirts come off soaking

slick skin sliding loam scent

match striking again and again

and again the laying on of hands

being all together

being all together

a fallen log listens; it’s center rich and empty

in tandem breathing dying breaths

extinction.

pause now…

how silly the concern for modesty;

now dressing in wet clothing to enter a house of fear on strangers faces

being all together

being all together
