100 ft walls of flame cross over freeway lanes
State of Emergency!
schools & banks & businesses all shut down
homes evacuated
planes won’t fly
even cats freaked out

Hysteria Death Ash like rain Looters

& now I hear Governor Davis declared this place a Disaster Area
San Diego burning!
the horizon cut from the picture
nothing past 50 ft
no sky no mountains no trees no buildings
only the break lights of other autos on the road

there is no sound
& no one walks the streets as if some kind of
George Romero-ian world has taken over

ashtray view
yellow cancer
8 AM more like eve
making even LA pleasant

100’s of homes toasted
the flames 10 stories high

I’m driving…
& I see flames
