Expectations

“Every cloud has a silver lining” – proverb

We watch the heavy storm –

Clouds whose bellies hang low,

Weighted with our expectations

For silver linings – but life is just

Phantom pregnancies, labor pains

That do not deliver joy.

If such linings were common, they’d be plastic;

We’d pollute the ocean with them.

They’re only silver because they’re rare.
