Bad Air Everywhere

Commonplace madness
spews, froths, invades innocence.
Brush fires smolder in likely places
and unlikely places
smoking, choking, spreading low, evil heat,
tended, sustained, nurtured, by the commonplace mad.
Walk to the corner in bare feet. No don’t.
Take care, take care.

Commonplace explosions
shatter, burn, destroy innocents. 
Furnaces blow in cellars,
churches, on street corners,
eruptions of deadly poison, bursting flame
startling, destroying, convulsing,
neglected or overfilled by the overseeing mad.
Sometimes there are warnings. Often none.

Take care, take care.
