Halloween night

Something occurs to you
on waking this morning:
storm doesn’t give concessions
or serve gratitude
but slices the natural world
into pieces and rearranges the order,
a surprise when you are road-driving,
the sky darkens and lights up,
the windshield fogging
and you remember that a few
windows in the house were open
when you left.
