Poet’s Nook:”case of climate catastrophe?” by Raymond Nat Turner

case of climate catastrophe?

frantic footprints are framed
on white streets where the
temperature suddenly
dropped
from
83
to
13

there is no normal now…
they left home in tank tops,
flip-flops, shorts and short sleeve shirts…
but in the blink of an eye—chattering teeth,
shivering shoulders caught out…
trudge home to hoodies, down
jackets, boots—cursing this
Chinese
hoax!!
