Paradise, 2018


Paradise, 2018: a pair of cherita

“It will take a while. But it will get better. It always does.” Eyewitness to the Camp Fire, California, November 2018

if we squint we see

the flames of a wild
fire as an aura–

a god’s adoring smile
a land and people blessed
a tempering of our souls

optical delusions

radiance mistaken for
divinity still blinds

with eyes nearly closed we
can only blame ourselves
for descending into darkness
