flood lie

rain rolled in today
set in like scars on a sow
rain rolled over us

like a mountain, like the whole
mass of Earth, the sound
of a hallow. the void, pressing

down with invisible
waters. we are
lost at the bottom of

an unfathomable depth.
it breathes,
then whispers,

then roars; everything will sink
down to dark. some where burned in
the psyche of us, do we all wonder

with the first drop of
winter – will the rain ever end?
will He lift his hand and

leave us all to drown again?
