blockage no. 8
by Marie Nunalee
a bumblebee, Kamikaze pilot
in disguise, balancing ancillary,
damp sidewalk-situated, papier
mache pinions flashing faintly.
six coarse-haired legs flicker for the
troubleshoot-detection of external
demise; antennae circuits flip on,
flip off, blow fuses red and bright.
