University has done a terrible thing

and wrought changes most foul.

A thousand tear
stained stitches
of desperate
thanks gripped
in the hand of
a young man
terrified yet
grappling with
twin sticks.

Dying bird of
poor metal make
plunges in
shearing the hull,
parting the decks
obliterating
plane and ship.
Fire atop the waves.
