A Change in Weather, Late December by Michael H. Brownstein
A Change in Weather, Late December
then a cold rain slipped in,
a cavalry of cloud entering the carnival late,
gun powder and iron, industrial waste,
noise within noise, ugly and belligerent:
First there is a crack in the bat,
then the jeers as the outfielder fumbles the ball,
and finally the winning run from first base crosses home–
and still the storm does not subside,
the air thickening with frost.
Earth closes rank and the clash of clouds bleed out.
