Suicide En Masse



The sun sank,
this great elliptical tea bag
into the Mississippi

mouths of smoke
curl out
in butterfly tongues
wet with summer air

desolate main street
a silent cargo barge
creeps up the river
spot light stretches miles
seducing Mayflies
tempting instinct-decay

they swarm the sky
apocalyptic fright
frenetic insect orgy
dive-bomb down
crushing winged bodies
against the afterglow
of my lantern eyes.

Why 'suicide'? Why not 'ecstacy' or 'fulfillment'?
