For Batman, who is in Oregon fighting not just the fires but the local flora as well.
Poison oak and burning flames
Scalding skin and lungs
The smoke is choking you
If I could breathe fresh flower-swept air
From the clear Olympic mountains to you
I would send every gust and volley
On the wind to you
So that you might stay well and breathe deep
My heart is with you
If not beating next to yours then
Beating a hummingbird’s wing
Sending you sweet aeolian things
Feel better soon,

So beautifully penned.
