01 Dec 2015 – Frenzy

You think the wingnuts
know how far it takes to spin
before the planet
kisses them goodbye, and flight
flings them at heaven?

You think they’re conscious,
having left the atmosphere,
and neurons fire
like they always did before
back in the old days?

While you stand watching,
lures deceive the race of men.
Sincerest madness
draws the drones like flies to flame,
and there consumes them.
