reddish black

the dark clouds
cast a nuclear pall
in a ruddy malaise
over a half dead city
settled in for
the last torrential hell
in the final breath
of a euthanized year

irradiated rain threatens
to pit the concrete
leaving smoldering pools
etching sorrows into
the asphalt arteries
trodden by the partially
animated corpses of
indentured necessities
