When The Named Storms Come

by Ingrid Wilson, Monthly Contributor
site: https://experimentsinfiction.com/

When the named storms come
and the power lines are down
and our channels of communication have been cut
how will you contact me?

I will be reaching out to you, and you
will mirror me, who reaches out
even now, even as I write this
in the dark

When the named storms come
again, you’ll send a letter:
I am sure you will
and hope the postal service doesn’t falter

And I will write a poem
like lovers did in bygone times
and seal it in a lipsticked envelope
addressed in my inked hand

And if the post can’t make it through
then I will drive to you
and if I can’t get petrol
I will ride my bike

From coast to coloured coast
and you will greet me on the bridge
at mouth of Tyne, our lips will meet
after the storm is done:

I will still love you when the named storms come
