Something was cooking
gained its salt, began concentrating
unbearable heat, begun pushing out

decades enmeshed in mass delusion
Chemtrail mania
economic pessimism
algorithms raise anxiety
flaring deep among them

their children got crackers washed down
with bleach,
yet another outrage on the balance sheet
mother West would vomit ethnic
guilt and prison conscience
deep down in their craw

At first, I couldn’t do any better than scratch my head and
steadily acknowledging
godawfulness through history.

there are things that happen
when you piss off the people who make up most of
the planet.
