Smog

Smog squats
On tender red eyes

It sits blindly
On asthmatic lungs
Its acid droplets
Linger on

    Yes, I kind of recall the poem this is based on. My husband has asthma so bad and I can really relate to this poem.

    Do you remember how cars were giving out exhaust not too long ago? How we breathe back then! Now we can really see things are getting for the better :) Enjoyed, Jon.
