The first time regime-ists detain you
on the fringes of the accidental skirmish
mortars flop down on bazaars in Tripoli;
Accountants man machine-gun pick ups in Brega
and Adjabiya is like some stratus of gun-brunt powder.
Fools have rigged minivans with anti-aircraft missiles,
and the conscripts keep prostrating on the skirmishfield
or firing wildly in the air without having secured
a victory in ink, courtesy of the play-by-play machine.
All those indivisible bolts we've been peddling
assembled on the blanche Sahara tableau,
poised against the indignant citizens.
