reverse drama :: kay ryan

by on October 13, 2016

Lightning, but not bright.
Thunder, but not loud.
Sometimes something
in the sky connects
to something in the ground
in ways we don’t expect
and more or less miss except
through reverse drama:
things were heightened
and now they’re calmer.
 
 
 
The Niagara River (2005)
(Listen.)
