Plutonium Train Comin' Through Town At 3A.M.

by Claude Mayers

                       the roofs 
                                  of the houses
Metallic cinders sparkle
As a meteor fleetingly catches fire
The widow gasps
Pulls on her nitroglycerin necklace box
Knows the time is swift coming past
For Man shall destroy all his creation
She closes the door
Stuffs her felt cordellias
                          into the gaps
Plutonium train two miles long again
She'd heard from sister Skul
