and they were afraid

Everything we have,

My grandmother says,

We owe to the rain—

 

I think less of her name,

Less of our history,

But rather the way the smoke clouded,

Soft and rotten,

Carcarasses in gasous form,

O, Grandmother, how they have killed us all.

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
