Blink

Momentary blindness
never does qualify
as sufficient alibi.
One swift snip
Of the red scissors,
One quick swipe
Of his god-fearing sickle,
One slight slip
Of her attention,
One giant stumble
By the authoritarian
Could all trigger
that little flutter
of wings that can
build a typhoon
that can wash away
Individual ample worlds.
For they may call
The losses accidental,
But the heart
Does not forgive, still.
