Government Control Fire

Suddenly, fuel.
Smoke. Blood.
No sanctuary.

My gusty companions rant,
“Ban church and state!”
Smokers. Arsonists.

Four centuries smother
the blackened canyons.
Chances are, it’s a dry death.

I have a friend named Gusty Winds, after Guston. He saw his name all the way down I5 once.
