III. CLAPS OF THUNDER LIE

lightning

These are no hands,
smooth or calloused,
brought close enough
to sound and then to
open up again;
these are doors
closed hard in knowing.

knowing is a thunder:
(rain is coming, coming soon)
a sound so fierce
it finds faces of mountains
from which to ricochet.

claps of thunder lie:

there are no escapes
and no congratulations.
