The ancient word taken to mean dove
also translated as drone
and the spirit which descended and remained
was like onto an MQ-1*
and lo these many, many years
we were meant
to be worshiping war?
~~for Shakira of Pakistan’s Swat Valley, injured during a U.S. airstrike
* General Atomics MQ-1 Predator
Splash in the vibrant
Dance of windswept laughter and
Skies flash blue test
cards where you cut the cable —
I stare at blank screens
