"Last night another big one fell.
It splattered like an egg of fire
against the cliff behind the house.
The flame ran down. We saw the pair

of owls who nest there flying up
and up, their whirling black-and-white
stained bright pink underneath, until
they shrieked out of sight."
-page 47, The Armadillo

At first I imagined some sort of bomb going off on the side of a cliff.  Blowing up a cliff and the surrounding homes.  The animals are running away out of fear because their homes are being destroyed.  However, the third time I read it through the "bombs" seemed more to me like fireworks.  The "flame ran down" is like the fire work falling like a weeping willow and the fire works lighting up the underside of the owls. Everything then made more sense as I read through thinking of the "bombs" as "fireworks."
