FROM PEACE TO EMERGENCIES
Wild convoy of sophisticated weapons
White clouds in the bloodiest uniforms
At transition from peace to emergency
For the candlelight borne by whirlwind
Solid skyscrappers drown in darkness
The storm-sized clouds in fluid warfare
In their occupationally expressed anger
Transplant terrorism in the distant skies
As wings floating in the migrant season
To alter the love altars man fails to utter
Conflicting drums in the thunder-clouds
Multilayered voices as in fleeing wagons
Deadly dancers doff our doomed squares
Like the wild and weird ires running wide
To test-run the rumbling ruins of movers
Souls severed from synoptic sanctuaries
Spew the dragon-lagoon across our way
Like darkness executed on the night pole
To feature our lineage in the black clouds
