today, a man at the taqueria
mentioned how both
Memorial Day and the Fourth of July
would be rained out this year

the sky grew pregnant with tears as he spoke
as if America herself was mourning
a changing climate
political unrest
injustice in the streets
and six hundred thousand deaths due to coronavirus
