Too Much Smoke

Too Much Smoke


went down to the river,
inspected the scene,

foul smoke spoiled
the amazing view.


flooding has eased 
water's going down.

chances are good
a drought is coming

(soon) and we must
wait for the other 
shoe to drop.


smoke obscures 
the scene in foulness.

ash falls everywhere.

driven inside, 
we wait for better air;

we'd like to breathe
again before 
we forget how.
