autumn mountains ablaze
california climate change
smoke gets in your eyes

mercury levels rise
oceans recoil in horror
it’s been a real nice clambake

one more deployment
or addiction and neglect
when johnny comes marching home

adjunct professors
gig economy
brother can you spare a dime?

trump in the white house
how to maintain sanity?
i can’t get started

climate accord lacks
one signatory nation
farewell to paris
