Before the Sky Shatters

This is a short piece inspired by a picture my mom sent me of the storm rolling in over Lake Huron at our family cottage.

The silence,

hanging like a damp face cloth over the forehead and nose,

buzzed like the moments between channels on the radio.

Much like the champagne in the cellar,

her stomach felt stuffed full of atmospheres,

bubbles escaping despite her clenched teeth.
