Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago
Rains fell ceaselessly the day
Before it arrived. Almost without
Warning its gusty winds slammed
Upon my apartment studio like huge
Tennis racket walloping windows
Walls, streets, trees and all.
‘Tis my first taste
Of mighty Typhon’s wrath
Here where it passeth: my new home
Walloping winds before night fall
Gone before breakfast time.
Electricity and water a-non
Pathetic state I was consigned to.
I could have invited majestic Typhon
To an engaging coffee chat
Over coffee, egg and toasts.
