A poem by: Ben Dunk. October 1, 1978

 

LOS ANGELES 1978

 

Shall we dine on smothers of bad breath

Hanging in the sky

Ruining the digestion

And length of life

Then come to the city of sparkling lights

In the folding land

Where victims love and play

In the delusion of security

 

The smog is less now: Aug. 12, 2010
