fake news from kathmandu

the lights descended on a
make-believe kathmandu
and suddenly the world took notice
just how populous
such a little place could be

but it was a mere deflection
those brilliant lights
meant only to deceive
some claiming was recently bottled
from a heavenly conjunction

the flashing was blinding
but there’s nothing left to see
and whoever managed
to elude the first sweep
can likely be found
sleepwalking the streets
in make-believe bangladesh

january two thousand twenty-one
