twenty imaginations...

I denounced a bomber:

the authorities
could not see him
he was camouflaged
against the climate
in combats
patterned with paranoia

I identified an abandoned package:

the authorities
could not see it
it was hidden in a bin
under yesterday’s Metro
and a crushed packet
of twenty imaginations

I see civilians divided into limbs and organs and blood:

the authorities
cannot rescue them
the five entrances are sealed
by two eardrums
two eyeballs
and one tongue
