the opposite of a hurricane is silence
 
delaney s. saul

she hums her prayers

forgetting my faithful hand

and the meat of our sisterhood

 

the horseshoe above her bed is gone,

now luck drips down the wall

and erodes her porcelain teeth

 

lips parted, she breathes through her mouth now

silenced, she banishes the memory

but the taste of the hurricane lingers
