Recovery

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 12:03 am

Surveying the aftermath

of the gusts

of the swells

of the waves having

crashed into cities not

used to it.

 

Not a category five

a four

three

or two

only a one

but this was not

Miami

or

Charleston.

 

Many feet of Boardwalk

washed away gone

many feet of trees

and lines

loose on the lawn

many feet of

displaced sand

visible by dawn.

 

Populations

enduring

power by many

re-procuring

infrastructure

re-securing

each new day

reassuring.

 

Caribbean

East Coast

Jersey Shore

NYC

we know the score

thankfully

Sandy

did not

claim

more.
