Thunder Snow at the National Gallery


The ways that the glass and space reflect
make thunder sound like a cheap effect;
like someone somewhere pounds a drum;
to cue the players: ‘Hark the storm!”

I like the way that we lose the Dome,
the home of late to so much wrong;
the world then ends at reflecting pool
frozen and circled by panicked gulls.

Working on Sunday again? Pat Robertson says that's a sin.
