Queen of Perspicacity

Queen of Perspicacity
Cut through and toss.
            There’s a thunderstorm
                        building strength
from water       and on its way.
   Say it out loud
                        I need your help.
  Too many voices       obstacles
            I can’t think straight.
      But, of course, I can
                        roll across
          the big picture
                        rain down and strike.
You swept me off around the world at birth,
                        showed me what to absorb
and what to repel.
National Weather Service warns
            “lightning strike zero mile from home.”
Say it.
            I miss you when you’re not here.
                        My better judgement.
                 Throw it down.
S. Robbins from Readings
