“Reflections in a Dead Man’s Eye”


“Reflection in a Dead Man’s Eye”

Suspended in a dead man’s eye, a “So long!”
He sees his death before him, flash deflected.
Quickly takes his shower breath and blocks his song.
One-sixtieth light speed the orb reflected.
Arias is a shattered, blasting cauldron.
And in her left hand shines the sharper weapon;
Her right hand, camera aloft; her symbol.
As Lady Justice sparkles and she trembles.

 

(referencing  enlarged photo of the left eye of Travis Alexander; the photo
shows  the last instant of his life before Jodi Arias kills him).
