Weather Report

My wife
was the weather woman

She predicted
her friends' sexual temperature
without ever being wrong

She announced
with barometric precision
the storms that threatened our neighbors

She was wrong just once:

the day she went out on the street
in a summer dress
despite the dark clouds

the day I put my bags in the car
and headed out on the road
in the middle of thunder and lightning
