The sky is heavy…

The sky is heavy today,
a kind of pressure that manifests

around my chest and ribs,
reminding me of that sensation

last night as I lay on my left
and was inordinately aware

of the spasms of the chambers
of my anguished and paralytic heart.

The clouds come in every shade
of gray, in shapes like muffled screams.
