Tristero Remembers

Tristero at Hullabaloo on mechanical failure of a recently downed American helicopter in Iraq.


unfriendly fire
breaks mechanical jargon into flesh
and steel

friendly fire
shoots down the spinning angels
wings unto the burning scrap heap

we are strangers with guns
dancing in the burning sun

in the sky above us
great shadows wheeling
they used to be alive
