Elegy

Angels of Paradise
In the air and of the earth

Flying from the flames
Disappearing in the smoke
Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust.

Drifting for final views of California
Find places to rest
Home in the mountains.
Home in the cities.
Home in the people.

Refuges of Paradise
Camped in Walmart parking lots

Unsung resilience
Holding close for warmth
Whilst screaming night terrors
Dreaming of burning lungs, fading comforts

Ours to care for
Donate for Thanksgiving
Donate for Christmas
Donate for New Years

It’s impossible to comprehend the loss.
Together, we mourn.
We sit with the grief.
We love.
