Hurricane

There was a Hurricane around the corner.

Popular especially at sundown.

In a Hemingway ambiance,

Lying kept him alive.

Telling the truth kept him fed.

The right mix kept drunk.

There was a Hurricane around the corner.

Storms inside,

Outside.

In the distance.

A man.

All that “potential”.

Withers in the tempest of it all.
