Cicada Shells

Blue jays swooping and
slapping with wings –

with flashes of surge
not bombs wedged in their beaks

and suckered to the off for an
escape into something different –

fireflies are igniting each flight
with cherry red terrestrial blood

along that lucky chasing
never to return, never to return

and cicada shells of balm disguise
their screeches, claws anchored.
