8. One week into Lent

One week into Lent, and the rain's come on
out of blue skies and a heat wave that broke all records.

It will be gone tomorrow,
the heat back by the weekend.

The radio said this.
The website I check weather at

said it, too. The weather has a voice,
one that kept me up last night, again.

It has gotten easier to hear,
the sound of a near thing, not a whisper,

but like the dim, discordant tone
from above ceiling panels in an office.
