THIS WHEEL’S ON FIRE

                                                                                you lift your faces
                    and let it drench you in evening prayer.
                                        – George Perreault (“April Winslow: Waiting on a Rain”)

Nothing good about the Amazon
burning better than expected:
a fifth less oxygen,
drier Gulf storms
from the llano to California
to stream our cheeks with prayer.
