Smoke

Warning, warming,
Says cold science.
Carbon in the air.
A pterodactyl effect.
Ice shelves collapsing.

Warning says the box.
Poison for your lungs.
But the edge is there.
Brain reads, comprehends,
Ignores.

Warning in my mind,
The smoke you exhale:
Mosaic and metaphor,
Blanket and screen.
Clouds the view
Of what we could be.
