Loose Wiring

This cable is frayed &
liable to fuse – trips &
other dangers wound
to potential attraction
[set by de Coulomb’s
ruling out differences]

Shakespeare’s plays –
a hundred starlings in
New York City swiped
eggs from bluebirds/

Paul Tibbets is found
in war’s history books
& spoke of no regrets
after he flew a B-29 &
crew over Hiroshima’s
complete ignorance &
smelt shadow-ghosts/

Off to darkened hearts
in jungles – Yanks step
knowing no path back
[not one read Conrad]
& a lunatic leads them
as wires are crossed &
shocks provoke his ego
