The topic for Two Haiku Tuesday: downtown is on fire.
Inspiration: well it certainly looked that way this morning - black smoke billowing up from what appeared to be the heart of downtown Vancouver, at least from my office building in Burnaby. Turns out, it was just a few very pricey boats going up in flames.
Which, I suppose, would have also made a good prompt. Perhaps another time.
Skyscrapers spit flames
From mouths lined with jagged glass;
Black smoke becomes sky

"Downtown is on fire!"
"I don't care, Bob - I still need
That report by noon."
