Nuclear Nostalgia


I remember not, all the past
Violent dreams, with misheld asp
Cowering shapes, too vague and disturbed
Plunged and raped, my mind's central nerve A visitation, not held with any honor
a defilement of sanity, bound by another
Past lives, crimes, and deeds undone
Atonement for all, stand only one A thousand lights, rolled into one
A wind so strong, feeling for none
A flicker of time, what is done is done
Humanity abolished, with my touch of a button

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
