Another Summer Living on Cigarettes

 

 

It’s not even Memorial Day

and they are already talking apocalypse

 

it will change everything, the way

you eat   think   educate your children

 

I stockpile potable water

own a firearm

 

It’s like this every summer

Blight creeps up the coast

 

like a fever

drops fruit from the tree

 

The ashtray overfilled

Wood houses in Pennsylvania

 

rot in the swelter

A green sickness

 

flowers over everything
