the ugly writer

Time Traveler

The eyes unfold and the story aligns-- rain from the sky sounds like punches I learned in my garage and Dad’s body rippled like the windows at night.

Time Traveler

 

He sits alone
watching lightning swell like veins in the clouds–
his heartbeat makes the windows shiver too
as he makes a narrative of rain
at night to fall asleep.

First, the feeling of the saturated atmosphere
then the sound waves from the window panes
inside canals, inside the brain informs
what the sound is–rain.

The eyes unfold and the story aligns–
rain from the sky sounds like
punches I learned in my garage
and
Dad’s body rippled
like the windows at night.
