tomorrow (a little) more

we are more
now
than we were
a year ago

more
temperature

more fire

more disaster
and
more

much more
fear

and
we are less
right now
than we were
two months ago

one
month
ago

just
a week

less bush
less
air

less creatures
of the forest

less trees

less bravado
(more courage)

less heart
(more stoic)

nothing
is the same
no
thing
will be
the same

and I wonder
more

or less

about
tomorrow

what will we be

tomorrow

a little wish
toward
another day

  1. What a powerful statement of the ravages of fires. Living in Southern California, I can relate to some of this, though only from afar, as I’ve not directly experienced the loss — it must be terrible. I’m so sorry!
