Visiting Hiroshima - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

1>Peace Memorial Museum.

two buildings
the museum surveys the history of Hiroshima
and the advent of the nuclear bomb.
main focus August 6; the dropping of the bomb
and its outcome in human suffering

personally it upset me

2.Cenotaph for the A-Bomb Victims

Between the Museum
and the A-Bomb Dome
an arched tomb
for those who died
initial blast
and then
of exposure to radiation

3. The Register

Below the arch is a stone chest
holding a register
of these names,

are over 220,000
