High Roilers

A mismatch conceived in disparate places
arctic trough spills down from the Rockies
humid air drifts up from the Gulf--
a blind date gone bad over Slap Out.

Type A affronts Miss Congeniality
warfare of air ensues
cumulus on steroids churns black
puffing in high indignation

flashing silent internal sparks
slinging an omen of thunder
crashing cookouts from Altus to Tom
leaving a tinge of ozone

igniting a wheat fire near Grandfield
then drenching the grain with tears
dousing grills and ruining games
all the way to Ruston.
