  This is what it's like to be

downstream of catastrophe

Away from flame and wind

Yet carried as far Napa's call.

  An acrid, melancholic cry

shouted through the haze in the sky.

How pale, sickly, the orange sun;

stifled yellow coats, hatchet men.

  As we pick up the pieces

of a scattered puzzle,

the grapes of wrath

grow heavy with the vintage.
