any moment now…

the sky seems so tight
like mom’s plastic wrap
over leftovers in the fridge
any moment now
the rain will fall
in big heavy drops
and the lightning will flash
deep into this fluid night
creating zebra stripe patterns
as I pass time counting
the calm between slow moving
rumble and strike
thunder and slash
armor and sword
in this ordinary storm
that never gets old
