Run Like Hell~by Paul F. Lenzi



Run Like Hell


hurry the day

move along

keep ahead

of the storm

cheat the thunder

outrun the

electrified air

save your shadow

from murder by

darkcast of clouds

should you falter

and fall beneath

torrents of rain

all is lost

washed forever

from memory

swept from the

cycling of history

leaving at most

a sweet petrichor

aftermath scent

an ephemeral wisp

fleeting wraith

ecological figment


  1. timely and disturbingly stirring.
