So we decided to ___________

So we decided to move to Texas

Just the three of us
as Bruce noted,
you, me and all that stuff
we’re so scared of;
from acreage with a view to forever
to an apartment on Eagle Mountain Lake.
From the north fork of the Coeur d’Alene
to Azle.
From a leisurely day across
to the state where El Paso is
closer to California than Dallas.
Remember the first storm?
You asked how we would know
if a tornado was about to take the roof off
‘cause we couldn’t see anything but
swirling cloud and lightning flash.
Now eight years later
try as we might to not get sucked in,
this place has found a home in our hearts.
