escher poetry — [L] :: 6

image: read the poem!

we image enemy aircraft
    ignorant flying bravado
        a supposéd sharp attack

each reflected radar eye
    each passive radiation plant
        works out where

one sees one by entropy
    all see all by stats
        every enemy flight

who don’t know what
    their spies report
        they only see fragility

our naïve blooms
    our night flight locators
        our sneak attack detectors

we don’t want the enemy
    to keep the peace
we want the enemy
    to give us their defeat
