“Come outside and look at this weather”
“What is that guy doing across the street in the pouring rain,
and what is that blue flash coming from his hand?”
The sky was full of swirling black and gray,
angry and wet. Giant drops
fell onto the sidewalk and the wind moaned.
The thing the man had flashed blue again, he pointed
to a dim rainbow in the Eastern storm clouds
and snapped another cellphone photo.
