Poetic Asides Evacuation

Louisiana Evacuation

Nothing like the feeling
you get when a hurricane
descends on your daughter
as she escapes to Arkansas

and then days later makes
her way back with a convoy
of cars. And then you
listen on the phone

as she returns to her apartment
and checks her toilet
for critters that may have
washed up from the flood.

I’m glad she’s in Phoenix now.
Nothing more to worry about
than a haboob on the highway
or heat exhaustion.
