Sea Of Azov, Military Escalation

 

 

for Kiev protesters

 

 

Didn’t you know, you get

What you

Don’t deserve

The precise

Moment

Vulcan rocks

Fall

About-face

To tell it

The way it is:

 

A ‘saffron’

No Chorus

Sound…

 

 

 

 

 

World & Foreign Economies

 

 

Arms trafficking. Plutocracy.

Coercion doing the rounds.

Voyeurism…

Ad nauseam a la mode.

 

Is this what you envisaged?

A mono-toned universe?

A basket-case of intangibles

Suckling the tilt of darkness?

 

If I must, I’ll dust myself off

In the morgue of memory.

Light candles

For the alkaloid Madonna – then

 

Take confession from

Your limpet moon.

When I return

I expect answers.
