The distant sirens are drowned by the rain
and thunder. The eye of the storm
surrounds me as my car shakes

And so do I. Shingles detached from their roofs hang
in the air. The wind carries what is torn
and the distant sirens that are drowned by the rain.

Will I remain calm, breathing, alive and awake
when the water pools at my feet on the floor
and surrounds me as my car shakes?

This is the tornado warning that will drive me insane
as I drive during the darkened day towards
the distant sirens that are drowned by the rain
which surrounds me as my car shakes

When the lightening strikes my car will I stay
grounded or die? Will I take the form
of the distant sirens, drowned by the rain?

If you would just call me I would know you were safe
under your basement stairs. I wish for warmth
to surround me but my body shakes.

Will my headlights hit the pavement or fall right off the earth?
