“Oil and Blood” – Underground 7.1

‏  Airplanes:
Tubes of steel
with protruding blades
and shielded bellies.
Full of oil
and of blood,
breach the skyline in search of god,
and then skim it, disheartened, in search of pitch.
‌­  Airplanes:
Those languid white bullets,
rip slowly through the clouds
as if they were of flesh.

“Oil and Blood” appears in issue 7.1 of Underground Art & Literary Journal.
