Asking the Wind

How many roads led to this precipice?
Dylan told us where to look for answers.

I stand on the sea-whipped cliff, testing air,
Medusa hair holding the sky aloft
Eyes scan horizons for the surrendering dove
as boots breach borders in mid-winter snow
The Pale Moth flexes red wings, thrumming
menace, crumbling peace like a biscuit. 

The wind squalls, heavy with questions 

In another hemisphere, the land down under
blazes 50c and lets a virus rip. The PM has no eyes,
no ears. Who hears the suffocating
cries, the planetary reverberations, 
the eroding loss?
How many deaths will satisfy the gods?

The hot wind squalls, heavy with questions

I summon the Tambourine Man to quell the drums
of war. But answers blow lonely in the wind.
