Mind Like a Hurricane – Alex West

You are just a civilian

And I– the storm.

Are you ready for a downpour?

 

Message for all citizens:

                         “Please seek shelter.”

 

I am not responsible

for the water damage–

in your house or lungs–

I am not responsible for your–

insufferable drowning.

 

Rain will be my acid,

But I am credited the petrichor.

I will be credited

I will be credited for my own serenity.

 

So please feel free

to stake your claim, bunker down,

feel the wind full force.

 

But I warn you–

               I shall show no mercy.
