Michael says (Cannon Fuel)

“i saw the light fading out”
one father says
“i saw the life fading out”.

one mother fills
fuel cans o want
with the life fading out

one mother
aims her wheels
at the hearts

one mother stands her child upside down

with a bop on the nose
be it ever so mild
she siphons burn-worthy
from a funnel into a hose

want is need
anger’s in speed

the husks of her children
become the feathers of Fall
of the wind formerly warnful
of velocity one could read

and michael said,
he told us

“i saw the light fading out”
