Calamity - Poem by James Trotter

Tomorrow and the next day
Mere shadows of a shattered alternative reality
Seating their piss on today
Making the ground reek of an unbearable stench
Burning away the dollar bills on the dresser
A deadpan of a somber silent film
And Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton are stricken with polio
Stuck in a depressionistic society
Acid rain burning the grass
But it might grow again
