have consumed the air, the skies,
memories of peoples' entire lives & now even a person.
i can smell in the air, in my hair, in yr skin.
the sirens wail every so often as the fire trucks
rush past to quench the fires inching closer &closer
here. there is nothing more frustrating than knowing
you can't do anything, all you can do is wishprayhope
that everyone will be safe &ok.
