#smallstones 10

“Fog,

our fog,

unlike Sandburg’s fog,

doesn’t tiptoe in on little cat feet;

It stalks,

it hunts us down

like prey and then it leaps,

springs upon us,

pouncing 

upon us

before attacking,

devouring, and covering us

as it were a giant jungle cat

making sure its prey did not get away.

Like Sandburg’s “Fog”, it too is silent

but no less deadly for  all that.

Escape seemed impossible

but we made it back home

still breathing, though our hearts

beat double time.”
