(NaPoWriMo Challenge: April 8, 2017)

What starts as a thrilling dust devil
fun fun funnel
bluster that runs into ******

the Victorian sofa broken in the yard
twist twist twisted
splinters the size of swords

the chairs and sink and dresser drawers
squall squall scar
shredded rubber and steel

the heap of indistinguishable trash
******* ******* spun out
man on his knees in the mud

the lifeless foot of anything precious
returning your wreck to you
turn turn turned.
Napowrimo 2017: Write incantation repetition poem. For a few weeks I've been intrigued by a New Yorker poem by Alice Oswald called "Evening Poem." I didn't fully understand it, but I kept seeing a tornado in it.
