2 April: for Shay’s Word Garden and RDP “Influencer”

AI artwork: two birds in the style of Cubism, Klee and Calder

Under the Influence

The weather has a temper,
the way two crows quarrel
over a piece of flesh.

It’s the way of things,
Solomon might’ve said,

and I think I’m watching
religion, or maybe I’m under
the influence of weather.

Radio reception’s gone again.
It sounds like six shades of blizzard.
Or cats and clowns hissing at each other.

There’s a girl on telly who wears
weather-girl clothes, and perpetually
blames everything on the weather.

She says each cloud is a new episode.
I say coo-coo-cachoo to that.

  1. Top notch writing. “and I think I’m watching
    religion” Old Testament, I think.


  2. This is great! The end made me smile. The eggman, the walrus and the weathergirl.

  5. I’m not fond of weather forecasters they get paid a lot of money and are almost always wrong in their fire ads at least where I live. 😂
