Your Presence Perplexes Me

when the lynch mob started coming
and the hurricane rolled in behind them
I thought I locked up everything
but there’s a tunnel to my basement
where you were huddled, hiding

“what happened to you?”
I asked, irritated.
“I don’t know.
I’m worried, though.
can I stay here?
could you and I
ride out our storms
together? I have flashlights
and supplies. if they break in
ill stay and you can hide.”

“Hmm. well…all right.”
