Chapter 1 – The Blue Chicago

The sun

Gave rise to

A mighty phoenix

From the ashes of our

Sunday afternoon

The menace of storm approaches

Colossal clouds break up rays

From mountainous horizons

Of earth and sky

The rain reaches up

Teasing us with cool

Droplets on the lid of an eye

Or in my ear

The sound of thundering voices

An electrical siege

Excites us

We swing out


Make my day
