Between Opposite Leaves

The new water is only a single atom thick.
It moves furtively in the quadruple games.
He is an electrical engineer;

that means he works at conducting electricity.
His weekend's intensified by layers of militant carbon.
The edge of the soil is Earth's electrical blade.

A plant drinks from the covert shift.
Emboldened, water illustrates (as with snow) that it is
clear embedded flakes, like a tattoo but rotated.

Alcohol is killing cancer.
Smoke acid.

Wave broke Monday

300,000 rivers and reservoirs,
Outpouring the border.
Violent battery of the free dictator.

Unthinkable, unreported.

Came by the secret district.

Because Monday broke in thousands,
And failed their system.

An alliance of poorer and high-income residents.

Screaming Colours Underground

900 trapped underground; believed to be safe
they suffer; dehydration, some lack access to medication
while they await evacuation

We’re engulfed in flames; screaming
fires emanating from both inside and outside
an icy stab in the heart; we have little hope of surviving…

Faces of men half-buried; burned away,
Days later, Kadir recognized his friends
only by the colours of their shorts
