Hurricane Katrina

Devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina

for potus
the fire and fury when
you came out to your mother
as Hurricane Katrina swept New Orleans
returned Sajid’s bicycle            as a street of houses in Florida fell
into the ocean
posted about The 1975’s album release
their best yet, really                                   moments after the Dakota pipeline
burst
said once, to your
self, as you hit
that button,
that you never meant to hurt anyone
