PoetryB-Sides

mom said that a tornado watch
had just lifted
sitting in my car
an hour drive from home

a flashback to -
the plastic bag from the backseat
billowing into
the windshield

the drop
of her in the passenger seat
navigating through
the howl of the darkening streets

I stare up
the now pitch sky
produces the deepest fears
unseen
