Vipanjeet Kaur and Jerome Berglund Collaboration | Meltdown 

deadly heatwave
the outdoors
a burning furnace

egg on the
sidewalk frying                          

fruits and vegetables
air roasting           

beneath broilers 

rain forecast      
amidst wildfires                     

rods and staffs 
divining how 
to fix this climate
