The subtle divergence
between a tire’s puncture
and a detonation
is lost to this dusk’s flyers.
Sombre shrapnels of feathery creatures
explode from light’s tangerine volary.
I shiver in my safehouse –
perchance the drone of philosophers’ augur
about this world has found me.
Perchance sleep I no longer may achieve
without winning a Russian Roulette.
