Scoundrel Time

It Isn’t Our Fault

Across the highway from the tank farm, where
tanks hold Bakken Crude and Tar Sands oil
that, when the Big One, I mean the Cascadia-Subduction
Zone earthquake, slams the Pacific Northwest, will
because they are situated on backfill, explode and send
a ball of fire racing down the Willamette River,

is a billboard with a black background and what appears
to be a heart-monitor read-out showing a heart
beating in red, then stopping, which proclaims:
When you die, you will find God.
