The Effects of Ida in a Small Pennsylvania Town

It rained for two days
Clouds, heavy with the remains
of Ida, cover the sky like a

sodden blanket tossed
over a clothes line
The rain gauge in the garden

overflowed and squirrels
birds, bees hunkered
down in whatever shelter they can find

A small leak appeared in my laundry room

and the ceiling dripped with the tears of Louisiana
