Watching the Weatherman Watching the Weather

Clouded certainty
cast over the air
where small talk
gets big sponsors.
Forecasting impending
degrees of change
while we watch
from within
When the weatherman’s words
of what’s happening
aren’t enough
to persuade us,
he will stand
in the midst
of the eye
of the storm
to show us.
Solicited second opinions
from rain-soaked citizens
solidify this.
Now back to the studio
a warm front softens
the wind of bad news
as we’re reminded
once again—
weather conditions are temporal.
But Acts of God turned
into entertainment
are not.
