Poems on Hurricane Sally

Posted on October 14, 2020 at 12:26 PM by Stephen Prestesater

American Dreamer

Like sunrise
Life has a rhythm.
Every day the same.

Always happy.
Always smiling.
Always been this way.

Sedation sets in,
sub-marginal goals
become acceptable.

Sally hit
and then
that ended that.

Worn Out

Dark days ahead.
Rain no longer a delight.
Roof no longer sound.

Still, waiting on my insurer,
Wondering how can you be so ugly
To Sally's down and out.

It's hard to get up
When gut punched
Don't they know-

you ream what you sow.

Marc Livanos, Milton's Poet Laureate
