The Twelve Days of Hurricane Sandy

On the first day… power, heat and water down – cheerful it’s not worse

On the second day… assessing loss with the neighbors

On the third day… the loud drone of generators and chainsaws

On the fourth day… temperatures drop outside and inside

On the fifth day… tempers flare

On the sixth day… squatting to pee outside – I do my leg bends

On the seventh day… laundry piles up now running low on matching sox

On the eigth day… willing to dance with the devil for a lukewarm shower

On the ninth day… seeing photos of total devastation not too far away

On the tenth day… adjusting to living with less

On the eleventh day… donating can goods and clothes for the newly homeless

On the twelfth day… visualizing daffodils and tulips blooming not too far away
