What comes with knowing

Hush
Faint breathe stirs the reeds
Dance pained revelry
Somber
Placed careful step

Faint
Leaves clatter against each other
Heat sears flesh
Woke to heel slashing earth
Arms raised in supplication
Words drift to too blue sky
A hum barely heard

Clatter of bones thrust in almost flight
Catching air before crash to earth
Clothes plastered to flesh
Pushed into place
Exultation to the darkening sky

Storm clouds bully their way through the heat
Stealing the sun’s tormented pleasure
Dancers join
Quickened by succor

Lightning flashes
Half second rumble proclaims

I HAVE COME

Storm sings a lament
Tears slash open across the face of the world
Stomp, step
Seared ground
Dust splashes upwards
Displaced
Turning slowly to mud

What was called is risen
And a woken storm
Sings counterpoint
Rumble, flash

Deep throat undulations
And still they dance
