MayPoWriMo 30

The streets have gone
from empty
to prevent a disease

to full in observance of
the original disease
that has plagued

these streets since
the auction block
tolled its bells

ringing in a new day
of profits for
the already enriched

and will continue
looting these streets
until all the windows

have been shattered
and we cannot see
the flames for the smoke

rising in our feeds
until we can’t
breathe
