All the sand in Sandy

fury in the storm’s wake a wake

storm surge
left to litter
their marriage certificate

Hurricane Sandy
October blows by

all the sand in Sandy on the streets

October storm
the plows are out
sand instead of snow

in the storm’s wake
learning to do
with less

in the storm’s wake
long-time neighbors’
first meeting

in the storm’s wake
dependency loses
its bite

in the storm’s wake wearing unmatched sox

in the storm’s wake
a rising
to meet the occasion

in the storm’s wake
a rising to meet
myself
