After the Storm – by RON GIBSON

After The Storm
by Ron Gibson
Yesterday, the lights returned
above you, the heat inside you.
Con Edison takes a bow
for my doing.
Last night, there was no night.
I was the fire nesting between your legs.
I was the hand that made you writhe
serpentine waves. I was the spoken
order that destroyed your shore;
the superstorm that redistributed
grains of you amongst the stars.
*
When these words enter you,
they will swell between your hips.
You will touch them, feel their heat
and remember the flames; remember
the name that brought them to life.
