Reflections in a Dead Man’s Eye


“Reflections in a Dead Man’s Eye”

Suspicion in a dead man’s eye says “So long!”
(He sees his death before him, flash deflected).
Quickly took his shower breath and blocked his song_
one-sixtieth light speed the orb reflected.
Jodi’s a blaring, shattered, blasting cauldron.
And in her left hand shines the sharper weapon;
Her right hand, camera aloft; her symbol.
And Lady Justice sparkles and she trembles.
