weather advisory

when rain is
the subject of
prayer in places
where drought
and famine are
accompanied by
the dishonoring
of women
corruption in all
cracks in empires
barely known yet
too well known……..

when prayers
for rain are uttered
in such circumstances
such times
expect a thunderstorm
of sand….and i’ll
have more on my
forecast at eleven
and all other
hours day and night
without stop.
