Riverfire

Such a strange thing, to watch warplanes dance
over one’s peaceful city. To watch them perform, like
Death in a g-string, undulating
around high-rises

Is it irony, to be entertained by this?
Naivety? Mulish ignorance? Or are we,

we children clapping at unloaded guns –

do we dull the tiger’s claws with our delight?
