Overworked

The colours

run

muddy

pushing limits and blend into

a ground over wet

overworked from rain

pounding in torrents

washing out the bridge

and tumbling wet clay sand

mixed with boulders onto the highway

everything seems to slip

as sequoias crack and sag

to topple over after millennia

I watch the houses in Broadmore

slide down the hillside

like children at the park

San Francisco doesn’t handle

the rain well

funneling it into the gutters

backing up onto the streets

eventually to run to the beach

as the Great Highway melts
