First Storm – by Jodie Hollander

Photo of Jodie Hollander, Vail poet.

Jodie Hollander, local poet, will read a selection of her poetry on the CMC Edwards campus 10/3.

When it first stormed in Costa Rica

I knew there was nothing I could do.

Our little yellow house started leaking,

all our fruit trees were losing their fruit.

 

The pink Heliconia were battered,

the banana leaves swirled in the rain.

Where was my husband? That didn’t matter,

our little house was starting to shake.

 

So I did the only thing I know,

I dragged out a chair and opened a beer,

knowing destruction will do what it will do—

I sat back, and watched what was here.
