We Are Running Out of Hurricane Names

we are running out of

hurricane names

we don't have anything

left to call anything


last night

i don't know

i slid inside all the dreams

inside

my mom's trailer park

in the late 1990s

felt the hand of god

or something

only to realize

we are running out

of hurricane names


i wish it was not true

i wish we could understand

each other better

but it is that feeling from

childhood

airplane in the sky

slow-motion slide into

dairy queen clouds

a shadow inside your mouth

a shadow inside your ear


what do you call it

when you can't feel

that feeling you used to feel?

what do you call it

when you forget how to tie your shoes?

what do you call it

when everything is in

your way?


i'm not going to

tell you

anything else
