i need a hurricane

i need a hurricane
to forget you
to blow down my limbs
to carry off my leaves
to rattle my roof
to crack my chimney
i need a hurricane
to out my power
put out my lights
to cause a curfew
and sell out my batteries
make me cook
with an old camp stove
and defrost my freezer
i need a hurricane
to make my neighborhood obsolete
to ruin the pavement
put me in line
for water
and beg for candles
i need a hurricane
to keep me up all night
and make the dog howl
bring the mosquitoes
full of fever
from Dominica
and
then maybe
i’ll forget
what i
remember
about you . . .
