G-bombs

Young girls
like ATOM bombs
leave mere
shadows of men
in their wake.
Beautiful
primal
blinding orange-white
slow motion mushroom clouds
spread open
like flowers
with sleek movement
through liquid skies.
Memories jumble
destroy and create.
Millions DIE
Millions LOVE
Millions DRIVE home
in their cars
in sorrow
and continue
on.

1995
