This author and fellow blogger is from New Orleans, a city I never made it to. That’s a future short story I’ll write someday ZouxZoux. Thanks for your poems of Katrina. This map says it all.

In remembrance of lives lost and lives forever changed due to the Federal levee breach in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. I’ll be posting poems and short essays I’ve written over the past 10 years through August 29.
Bloated river, threatening levee.
A fifth of gin for a genie appearance.
The bottle answered,
rolling out like a funeral.
That’s the best you can hope for.
The sky broke down, finally. Wailed
hard and sweltering.
