I Will Not Drown
These are seven poems dealing with the before, during, and after-effects of Horrible Harvey Wallbanger, the name I blithely bestowed upon the hurricane before the devastation began for real and took the funny away. My husband and I were two of the Lucky Ones during the dark days of Hurricane Harvey. Surrounded by friends and neighbors whose lives were swamped not only by the storm but by the subsequent releases from upstream dams, we had but to bail and worry and pray and protect our loved ones in anticipation of the worst. And watch in horror as it unfolded all around us.
