Not only what defines every condition of

atmosphere, but also now what rests
beside the bed—piles of—& each

volume announcing rain & cloud
& flood & what’s inside a kind of

clearing, & not only the only way
we seem to have something to talk

about, but how we’ve come to believe
weather might teach us how to

weather, how to go on. Because I can’t
bear most days the other kinds of

headlines, I’ve taken to wind
advisories, visibility, what the gages

indicate, & the local forecast—what is
occurring & what is imminent.
