Tornado People

tornadopeople

Most tornado people
don’t actually know
they’re tornado people
but a few of them suspect.

They begin to notice the wind,
fields of flattened crops,
the feeling of exhaustion.
Friends in hiding.

In Agents of Shield
Skye, an alien on her mother’s side,
accidentally goes through Terrigenesis
and develops seismic abilities
that make her both strong and unstable.

Her anger levels a forest.

When she pulls the force inward
she harms herself.

She needs to find peace.

Locate the still centre of things
and stay there.

  1. I love the photo you’ve used for this poem, both because it presents the concept of the words and also because it is art in itself.
