the storm approaches

a howler, they say,
this huge yellow and red circle on the blue of the pacific
glowing on my computer screen

looks angry

looks hungry

circling in a vast violent rotation
of screaming wind and thrashing rainbands

it's coming

it's coming

the air is deathly still and dripping humid
the clouds hover low
like threads of some monstrous web
tightening overhead

we wait

we wait

we wait

for the storm

to come
