The Flood is Coming

When the flood
Came
We were unprepared
The ants
Were marching toward
The boat
While we filed
Police reports
And bought guns
Robins pushed
Hatchlings from their
Nests
To flop on dry
Ground
And then flew
To perches on
B deck
During tax season.
Walking fish
Were turned away
At the boarding station
For being out of fashion
And walked back to
The water
Just as bathing suit
Season became
A topic of conversation.
What will we do
Differently
Now that
We have flood
Insurance and radar weather?
Rainbows have double
Meanings and promise
More than just
Safety from floods
But we know
Their ephemera
Won’t hold water
Any more than
Glaciers will.
