four fires

there were four fires
around my house today
in the woods
started by lightning
from the thunderstorm

flew over head
sucking up water
from the lake
to drop on them

fires burning
fires of fate
and that damn lightning
couldn’t have hit
those two stupid
telephone polls
that my neighbors
use as flag poles
for their American flag
and their Fuck Biden flag

damn nature
do something right for once
