Childhood Ghosts

The cat shrieks as childhood ghosts alight upon my window,
frame and draw cords rattle in high volume,
sashes split like earthquakes on a seismic fault,
tidal waves of tainted forest leafs a swirling, twirling juggernaut.
Thunderstruck by frozen panic, black night's wild tsunami cloud an ink pot mesh,
funeral dirges whistle,
Chanting misdemeanors at a tremor ridden soul
