"Untitled" by Reyna Flores

Snow Storm by J.M.W. Turner
As I looked up at the sky, it turned black and angry.
The wind howled like a mean dog.  As a matter of fact,
it was a dog!  I stared in surprise as cat after cat and
dog after dog fell from the lightning-lit sky.
Other people didn't take notice, but since I was in
a foreign country, I noticed it.  Everyone kept walking,
or driving, or window-shopping.
"Um.  Excuse me," I stuttered to an oncoming
woman.  "What is happening?"
She replied, "It is simply raining cats and
I looked at her as if to say, "Are
you crazy?" But I didn't say it.  And she just
walked away.
