Its Mission To Cause The Swerve (Bussokusekika)

Edwin Tanguma 1966 (CA)

Its Mission To Cause The Swerve   (Bussokusekika)

I still can’t fathom
All of the bits and pieces
Possibly a bot
Could it have self destructed
After it had accomplished
Its mission to cause the swerve

About this poem

I saw a lot of bits and pieces dancing on the roadway in my rear view after the swerve began…I tried to correct it but I felt as if My Father instructed me to let go and let him…So Am I did So..Go figure…Its as IF me saying All Mighty Powers That Be…What Do You Have To Fear Little Old Me???Am I the same boy GWB saw in San Benito…Has My Father now sent a man in stead of said boy???And what of “Nevermore???Nevermore…Nevermore!!!”
