Water flowing down the sidewalk

like in a creek bed

ripples and currents flow

into the parking lot

and out on the street

pile up around the tires

into the floor boards

now it is floating a car

and pushes it past shops

and houses

trying to drive on the water

as it deepens and you sink

the only thing left to do

is climb out the window

into the rain drenched night

onto the roof exposed to lightening

impossible to hold on for long

you let go and swim

while I am safe in my bed

watching the lightening strikes

for over an hour not thinking

of your dilemma

or how you became a casualty

of the flood
