Clinging to Sanity – #writephoto

Clinging to Sanity

a victim of
unnatural elements
senses open to
assault after assault

the steady thrum of
cloudburst patter
echoing through my skull

gunfire soundtrack
on city streets
dance floor as
shooting range
grieving parents searching
an idyllic shore

clinging to any green available
wary of crude oil trains
lumbering through
the canyons of my mind

This is my response to Photo prompt #writephoto – pale, by Sue Vincent at Daily Echo, with her photo and references to news stories becoming all to familiar to Americans.
