fireflies

.
every time a new intersection’s built
around me
it winds up bristling with cameras

omniscient light poles sprout
a cornucopia of eyes spill out

a million robot retinas
recording everyday ephemera

the little things we do in cars
we might not want the world to know about

all snagged, digitized and cast in a
binary log for some bureaucratic lout

to survey
to scrutinize

to get to better know the fireflies
in his jar
