Dead Planet LXIII

Dead Planet LXIII

Fukushima Mon Amour

Sleeping pills don’t help—
Empty bottles strewn the floor
Brief forgetfulness

Look into my eyes—
A cornered animal stares
At the TV screen

Wretchedness with the sound of
Cesium blossoms

My dead husband lives—
In the suburb of my heart
He worked for TEMPCO

Now the setting sun—
Blooming untouchably white
Chrysanthemum death

He was slain by rays—
Radioactive blossoms
Protecting Japan

He’s inside me now—
Blooming beautifully black
Plum tree Thanatos

I will join him soon—
Dark prototype déjà vu
Chernobyl chill
