Indran Amirthanayagam: May 2011

The house at the end of the road, the giant multiple-walled house

at the end of the road without a telephone, or internet

and the courier's story leaked out of somebody else's mouth


held incommunicado
in an East-European dungeon,

on leased land in the island of Cuba, but that is another story,

the war found its target, today, in helicopter to hand combat,

four aircraft once again, this time for choppers, and special forces -

not from Afghan camps
to Florida flight schools-but

Navy Seals, and the legitimate target, not three thousand

ordinary civilians living with their American lives

Until robbed by death, rules for the rest of us

alive, and now another death, tying

of the circle, the full spin
around the planet, what

Peru's president said he was John Paul's first miracle,

coincidence, his beatification and death in combat

of Osama Bin Laden, a bullet in the temple

Of Evil, no longer to Mastermind.
