A Third Ficcione for Martin Edmond

In their final pass over
the city of Nagasaki
did the crew of Bock's Car
take any time out
as they maybe crossed themselves
or touched a lucky dollar
in their flightjacket
to consider that
in their collective
incarnation as Shiva
they were the messengers
sent to cause
this fatal collision
between St Francis Xavier
& Christopher Columbus
who had both departed
the Atocha Station
four or so centuries before
going in opposite directions.
