the sky is burnt today
Hits Southern California the whole sky fills with smoke and turns an odd burnt haze of air and the phrase that goes through my head when I look at it is “it is the end of the world as you know it.” I do not know where I first heard the phrase but it always hits me when the world takes on a hellish hue around me and the sky loses its blue and the air smells of brimstone. Small glimpses of the apocalypse. Visited every year on us by the fires that always come to California in the fall on the heels of Santa Ana’s hell hound winds.
ps : this was probably really not the day to watch “countdown to doomsday”
