Power Shut Down in the Hills

Wildfire danger, season before the rains come

Awakened by the whoosh of heat going on,
allowing heat to warm our living space:
lucky in the lowlands! —
Who would have thought?!

Whereas those in the hills,
in the finer houses,
those extraordinary people,
with talent and success,
with top executive spots,
or so well known for talents,
they earned fame and best
position in the hills —
they had power shut off.

Those in the rebuilt fine houses
in prime positions in the hills
lost everything in huge fires
at this very time of year
when grass and trees are dry
and high winds blow.
They had power shut off.
