when the lightning strikes

the all-day love affair
of jennifer in the kitchen
making tamales and molé from scratch
for the local queers
_______
how we hang out
under the kitchen table
because juniper feels safe there
when the lightning strikes
_______

the mini-mountain of fresh gravel
in the driveway
that i hang the car up on
in an attempt to make parking space
for the potluck guests
and the potluck guests
who help dig me out
and push me out of the danger zone
