el niño

luigi ghirrii (luigi ghirri kodachroming)

el niño is reminding me that the planet is a volatile thing. but i’m benefitting from its instability, its inhales and exhales on the east coast. on monday, there was thick fog in the cemetery and we went to go coat our lungs with it. on tuesday, it was warm, and the fireplace casting shadows made us sweat. on wednesday, i wore a t-shirt while i looked up at the pulsing twinkle tree. on thursday, a brrr came in from one world trade and i shivered on the bridge. on friday, the tips of my ears were cold but the tips of my fingers were warm. on saturday, i dragged my foot through five inches of dead leaves. on sunday, i thanked the flannel god.
