Poetry Wednesday – Wash the Dust Off Tomorrow

building_implosion_small
The world crashed down
     around my ears
Thunder crack
Cymbal crash
The rumble of a building
     imploding
The soft tinkle of breaking dishes in an
     earthquake
 
Then nothing
     silence
     dust settling
     dumb
     numb
 
Then the ringing
     volume up like a teenager’s stereo
The world speeds up
Make a decision
     move on
Wash the dust off
     tomorrow
