at first read or two I really thought of destruction. But...the vid and the words brought forth a whole different train of thought.
I think it was

combined with

dinner by candlelight

that prompted a totally different insight.
Then again, I gotta wonder cos you're a tricky writer not easily deciphered. 

How ya doin' 7, it's been a while?

It sounds like it's dedicated to Hurricane Sandy to me!

Having just seen the 10.00pm news about the destruction caused by Sandy, I see that you may just have written about the storm.
I do hope you and yours are okay, 7, and you as well witt.

Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner! Spot on, it was and is about the hurricane.

I've lived on the east coast my entire life and still can't seem to get used to it.

Everyone rushes to buy supplies, readies their fortress and hunkers down
The world keeps on moving, yet the community and region at large, stops.

People wait and group together, some even celebrate, challenging the skies
and then afterwards, emerge into a world thrown into chaos— quiet chaos

the noisy birds and insects do not inspect the damage as quickly as we do

and everyone has this universal, all knowing, collective expression, like:
we're all in on the same joke that everyone's too damn afraid to laugh at

the silver lining: storms will come, they will go, and it brings people together

nature works in mysterious ways

Nature turned nasty does have that affect of bringing people together. Glad you're okay!

Somehow a sense of gore is conveyed, without nasty details.
I don't know what this is about exactly, but I get the eerie sense completely! Emotionally effective.
"Limbs on the lawn"-eek!

I tied in the devastation and aftermath of a hurricane with subtle religious undertones

I intentionally included an explanation on the literal interpretation with the movie Starman to further illustrate the symbology:
ancient astronauts/ chariots of the gods/ fallen angels ect., coupled with the literal meaning, hinting at signs of the apocalypse.

The apocalypse as it is commonly defined and accepted by religious/ biblical doctrine means the end of times, the final battle.
I tried, weather (pun intended) successful or not, to illustrate a deeper understanding, a revelation of truth, a lifting of the veil:

good overcoming bad and the necessity of both for either to exist

basically, this a metaphorical piece about nature, balance, and the human condition
