Golden haze (6/7/23)

The wildfires made a soupy fog

for days—golden dal-colored;

wonder what this apocalyptic haze

would taste like,

if we were able to stand

for hours safely, breathing 

in the golden polluted air

at lunchtime?

Don’t do it.

Wear your mask.

Don’t exercise.

This too shall pass,

but it will be

a long Summer,

& Earth is becoming

hotter with time.
