POEM: "Recently A Fellow Poet Wrote"

Recently A Fellow Poet Wrote

Recently a fellow poet wrote:
Highjacked by a book of poems, I want
To know more about my captor. What
Has given rise to such intentions?

Diesel smack and smeared mirages
A searing mark under a damning sun
Off the track from an untargeted village
Safe enough for the story and the pics

Now, I don't want to know more about them
(I overstepped my bounds, they're very twitchy)
I want to know about my options to get free
And except for my camera, I'm unrifled
And except for my passport
I’m fucked.
