I stood admiring the pink-red trees

when an ugly suspicion arose inside of me

that they released the Lorax specifically

during the brief similar color blooming

as some kind of free subliminal branding

and I heaved a sad sigh to think

how tainted my mind is with marketing

PSA: Rain

Attention moron drivers of the world:

If it is raining so hard that you can’t tell where the horizon between the gray sky and gray bay is

or where the tire-clouds of kicked up rain mist end and the actual cars begin

and it seems like God might be reconsidering that whole promise not to drown us like rats again

please- turn your damned headlights on. The end.
