Nuclear

This poem is based on Pintupi.


Nuclear 5/15

Everything was abandoned abruptly
left - emptied

The pavement cracks and animals move into the homes

Panes of glass vibrate until they crack
til they rain down on the new grass

There is a broken sky and the earth is yawning wide

People - what are those - nothing
could populate this again

Save the crickets the birds the endless open air
