DecPoWriMo 2

weather we’re having lately
leaves a nasty stench

some creature ripped up
a pumpkin left on our stoop
pile of seeds and all

such waste untended
I’m sure the leaf blowers will
come again this week

propelling gas fumes
that certainly shorten lives
schools are shutting down

to combat copy
threats coming in from all sides
there is precedence

for everything that kills us
