Nature Lover 2

NATURE LOVER 2

 

I’ve got winds

that can swirl the whole sky

& I’m not afraid to use them

I’ve got volcanoes to be blowing

shadows in the air any day now

I’ve got tidal surges that will

clean up your streets in a hurry

I’ve got quakes to leave you

nothing to hold & even

the floor will come in waves

 

I’ve got landslides

to topple your busy traffic

I have a wild imagination too

& if I get tired of regular rainstorms

I can drop some fish

or frogs or lima beans

on you instead

What songs should danger sing?

I’ve got powers

I haven’t used yet

 

I’ve got a million ways

to make you tremble

& that borrowed body

you’re so fond of

wearing every day

well you’re going to be

paying it all back with interest

& don’t forget the life story

of every atom that goes with it

Now tell me who do you love?
