day six.

december 18

today, the sky
tried to drown us all

forty-two years of famine
has left the country parched,
the ground is thirsty

mouth overflowing, 
the clouds pour her more
than she can take.
streets flooded, the city
is a woman pregnant,
two weeks over due,

but hopeful.

i go to sleep
and dream of swimming
through deep water.
