Lesser creatures

Yup, but he was talking to no one:
it wouldn’t have mattered at all
none would have even cried
if the hooded guy at the checkpoint
demanding receipt for the cedula
got bumped off by an SUV
whose drunken owner was blinded
by a flash of light on his face…
Sign of the cosmos –
verily, verily –
of a flunkey’s territorial vanity.
If strays sniffing each others’ fur
get whacked by some clean-cut guy
who’ll make the sign of the cross
as he flies into an alley of street lights
Jesus! It’s a waylaying of truth
that “lesser creatures” are secret cherubs
& mankind doesn’t have dominion over their tribe.
