Slice of Life 18:


what is smog like

smog is a steamed breeze a locker room vapor

moisture in the air microscopic droplets clinging to your lashes

 smog looks like exhaust a hazy cloud an ashen veil draped

 overhead clouding spaces in between and through

 smog is pureed  cauliflower diced parsnip with a side of seltzer

Smells of a damp cloth dank cellar the underside of a steely rock  

the static of television a running faucet fixed and stagnant numbing

an ashen cloak stirring Earth aromas carries fragrant smells of clammy soil  

mysterious elusive whispering secrets

intangibly fleeting
