coffee scented pollution

a quiet clatter
of coffee percolating
soft bird song
under yellow
tinted blue skies
a semipermanent
bank of pollution
refracting the
nascent sunlight
over a sleepy city
a kaleidoscope of
latent poisons in
slow suffocation
as the first week
of the fresh calendar
fades into the past

i sit
calm and thoroughly
unprepared
to meet the day
a bipplar bard
fluctuating
to and fro
with no control
over the oscillation
in chemical deluge
the carcinogenic
hazel dispersion in
a funeral shroud
of anxiety
