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.
