storms

lightning in the sky flashing just over the wing of the plane stabbing across the sky in jagged arcs dancing as dallas comes into view

the savage beauty of voltage flaring at the same height as the cityscape comes into view through the misty haze of heavy clouds

i cannot see my apartment from up here nor make an educated guess at it’s approximate location between forked strikes of electrical wonder

the hostess hands me another bottle of whiskey with a smile as we circle high above the lights twinkle below as thunder crashes in the sky and my skull

it’s beautiful like you i wish i could share it with you take in the splendor while we hold hands and the cabin pressure squeezes my skull like a grape

lightning flashes over the wing bringing shouts from the cabin all i can do is smile as we barrel through another cloud fat with unfallen rain
