Day 29 – The Madness Comes with the Rains

The madness comes with the rains,
when the dams boil over,
fill the gopher holes, rabbit holes
and the scarecrows bow down
to the fierce of the blanket
of the Earth.

The rocking chair voices
use the cover of the storm
to hit higher octaves
and much higher octaves
and proclaim that this now
is the end of breathing
whether by a cramping of lungs
or a knock on the door
or nothing for nothing’s sake,
and you will die in this frenzy
like you never have before
with your skull stuck in the cracks
of the sky, all lit up
’til it passes.
