summer thunderstorm

the lord said to the
israelites when you
go into the land do not
dispossess its inhabitants for
if you do you will see them at every
turn you will hear their distant voices like
insects buzzing on a humid summer
night you will feel their
breath at your back like
the breeze that rises before
a thunderstorm whispering everything
you think you can possess
can always be
washed
away

(Numbers 33:50-55)
