Assault with a deadly weapon

“I walk to metro and then to destination and am constantly assaulted by a deadly weapon.”

Assault with a deadly weapon


Walking in the hood

The smoke wafts behind them

Like a dog on a leash

Straining to reach us

Innocent bystanders

Babies and pets

Barely visible molecules

Nostrils twitch

Lungs fill with poison

Daily, hourly


vapors of death
