"Desolation" by Evelynn McCoy

Updated: Jul 7, 2022

I stand tall and I am big

but I am not bigger than the storm

that consumes me. Limb

by limb I am slowly being

torn apart by the vicious funnel.

Blur fills my eyes

to the point where the only color

I can make

out is debris.

Each gust of wind seems to make

me smaller. My roots

lifting, I begin to close

my eyes. I feel

myself go up like a rocket

into space. In the space

of a second, I became

the debris I once was watching

circle me like vultures.

No more is all I see.

No more is all I hear.
