Thunder Shake
Heerak Christian Kim

In the tumult of nature’s magnitude

I experienced the hidden torrents

Of my own affective intensity

That lies encrypted under a neutral expression

Was it the nature pulsating?’

Distraught by the cosmic gravitational pull?

I felt the quiver in the short hairs on my arm

And wondered how it would be for me to howl like that

In the moments of disquietude

I felt strange comfort

Because something else in the world

Was more upset than my shivering heart
