(. . . for Oriana Fallaci- she warned me/us years ago)

Her mouth

was a siren

going off:

“I think probably

there is going to be a

a third world war.”

And I ran

through war images

in my mind

my every heartbeat.

after the


you are like a

mutant dog

either mad and barking

at the world

or hiding from it.
