fiery glow

I shouldn't be seeing this. I shouldn't be seeing orange glow in the sky. Glow on the bottom edge of clouds. Clouds over the city. Heavy grey clouds lit from the city underneath. Glowing from street lights, bad lights over empty parking lots, glare over roadways and highways, swirling spot lights pointing to nothing, uplights on billboards for products I'm not interested in, that only 1% of the population is interested in. I should not be seeing clouds painted with waste light from the ground.

These clouds should be dark. Dark grey. The soft grey of backlighting. Backlight from stars.
