Sky Rat

if only these were clouds

not fucking with my haiku syllable count

but actually pouring down rain instead of smoke

if only we didn’t have cactus along the Front Range

to remind us of

how harshly we’ve parched this Earth

how we’ve stolen the sky with fires

how these are not clouds trying to hide

the ever-present sun
