Living On A Fault Line

Living on a fault line

I suppose has

Its bravado,

Its stupidity,

Whatever in the hell

You want to call it,

Perhaps the sense of

Invincibility, the

C’est la vie that

Most people have,

Living on a fault line

Is a piece of cake,

It’s the heart line

That brings us

To our knees.

They say it was

Around 9:00 PM

On January 26, 1700,

And that another one

Is grinding, lurking,

Destined to come,

And yet only .003%

Of the Campbell River

Population, that’s right,

Only 105 came to learn

How they might stay alive

When the Juan de Fuca

Slips again.

With the day settling

Into its

Tuesday routine,

Commodities still


Oil down to

Fifty-five ninety-one,

Wild weather hopping

Coast to coast,

One can’t help but


At those who insist

The world’s economy

Is great and growing,

That climate change

Does not exist.
