Perhaps there is terror

Perhaps there is terror
In this dawn arriving
Too early, too bright.
A mirror is bound
By harmony as it reflects
On the world, but the noise
That makes birds
Not yet in flight take off,
Is asymmetric and unpredictable.
If you sever pheromones
Of fear from self, it belongs
Not to you, but everyone,
Like the colour red.
These phrases do not
Have enough elasticity.
When everything human
Has been betrayed,
Accompanied by an alarm,
Our limitations and apathy
Will end and be burnt away.
