Something Else


The sun sets ahead
of the rising moon,
flash flood warnings
sound on my phone.
Another prediction
of too much rain,
I've heard them all,
time and again.
We're supposed to go
to higher ground,
feel a sense
of impending doom,
but I've learned by now
something else
is coming,
it's approaching fast,
and will be here
soon.
