Earthquake

There has been a lot of rumbling throughout the South of late. From Haiti to Chile to Mexico, the earth seems determined to quake, and it is this particular brand of nature’s wrath that has inspired this poem:

First the rumble

Then the roar

Tumble, tumble

Tried and tore.

World is spinning

Dizzied drunk

Sanity set to shaking—

No stoic monk.

Screaming rock

And tearing earth

Shocked flock

Stripped of mirth.

Thunderous

Devastation—

Anonymous

Creation.
