From the archives – Quake — Tyrell Johnson


The ground shifts
under our feet

the fishbowl lands
with frightening speed

you and I
fall to our knees.

When all is over
we look to the floor.

Our shattered windows,
the broken door.

We can’t remember,
was it us,

or the earth,
that shook to the core.
