LA Smog

The cloud of smog over LA
Has long been seen
As the downfall of humanity.

Weed on the streets
At every corner,
Where there aren’t people in suits
(Like the heart of New York)
To remind us
Of our failures.

We say the smog is in the sky
When the actual thing that is polluted
Is us—
The smog is a mere metaphor
For the dirt of our minds.
We
Are the smog of the world
In the place of broken dreams.
