The White Noise of Dead Strangers by Mike Zone

ascending particles
mad dog raindrops screaming
the unknown vault amiss
double-bond chemical trail broken
drop the torch
in perfect gardens
deer hunting with Jesus
plucking strange fruit
inhabiting odd yet familiar places

of it all
is a wonder, a short-term lease
from outside the void
spitting on a quasar?
