There are worldwide, catastrophic storms
When earth’s network
Of weather-control satellites
Is sabotaged by unknown enemies.

As fire rages through the western forest
Jeff Bridges snarls,
“If you want a piece of me,
Come get me.”


The baby says, “MMM, MMM!”
To the stuffed fish
Then hits it
Against her closed mouth.

“Ah, Ah,” she says,
Holding it at a distance.

She opens and closes
The palm of one hand. “Bye-bye,”
We say for her.
“Bye-bye, Fishy!”
