California

The state on fire.

                                The state breaking up.

Money burned through like brush

From ridgetop to seacliff.

                                                 Earth underfoot volatile

As a taxpayer revolt, brushing off wisdom

With one great sideways push.

Street palms in a tapestry of flame.

The faults, the one true native species, immortal.
