Emotional weather report

Remember this?

late night and early morning low clouds
with a chance of fog
chance of showers into the afternoon
with variable high cloudiness
and gusty winds, gusty winds
at times around the corner of
Sunset and Alvorado
things are tough all over
when the thunder storms start
increasing over the southeast
and south central portions
of my apartment, I get upset
and a line of thunderstorms was
developing in the early morning
ahead of a slow moving coldfront
cold blooded
with tornado watches issued shortly
before noon Sunday, for the areas
including, the western region
of my mental health
and the northern portions of my
ability to deal rationally with my
disconcerted precarious emotional
situation, it’s cold out there
colder than a ticket taker’s smile
at the Ivar Theatre, on a Saturday night
flash flood watches covered the
southern portion of my disposition
there was no severe weather well
into the afternoon, except for a lone gust of
wind in the bedroom
in a high pressure zone, covering the eastern
portion of a small suburban community
with a 103 and millibar high pressure zone
and a weak pressure ridge extending from
my eyes down to my cheeks cause since
you left me baby
and put the vice grips on my mental health
well the extended outlook for an
indefinite period of time until you
come back to me baby is high tonight
low tomorrow, and precipitation is
expected

Emotional Weather Report — Tom Waits.

So, yeah.

Feeling a high chance of squalls — or to be honest, hurricanes and tornadoes — regarding summer planning, except — I rethought some things, and talked to some people, and it looks like there may be a chance of making some of the things I was dreading a lot more fun, and there may be a chance of adding something purely because I feel like doing it, and it’s looking a little bit more like sunny days with no chance of precipitation at all. Or maybe a chance of rain on a day I don’t need to go anywhere at all. So that sounds a lot better. Hurrah.

  1. Only Californians can think of weather as something internal. But if it’s up to you and you can generate blue skies and sunshine, more power to you!
