I'm Walt. And I'm Marie Elena.
This is the collaboration of two kindred spirits; partners in rhyme;
"the best friends we've never met."
All "Across the Lake. Eerily."

Before she claimed over 1800 lives;
Before she flooded parishes,
And displaced thousands;
Before she wreaked catastrophic havoc
On the levees of New Orleans;
Before she hit southeast Louisiana;
Before making her second landfall;
Before gaining strength in the Gulf of Mexico;
Before she formed over the Bahamas;
Before a drop of rain fell;
Before she eyed her target;
You were engulfed.

Marie Elena

  1. Glad to see you caught up "Walt Style", in sheer numbers. Appropriately posted right after yours this AM with another. I can smell the bread from here. Sumptuous to say the least.
