WE HAVE NO WORD FOR WANTING A STORM TO COME
A storm. There is need of a storm.
rain to slash the windows,
a snowstorm overnight so deep I believe
I dreamt it, a power outage so it’s just
the cats and me at the woodstove.
To be in bed with my lover
while the snow whirls
like wedding confetti, as though
our rocking is creating the storm.
We are its will. Its center. The desire
for storm: stormlust, wildelust, to
loast, to dreome, woane, winge.
