Let Me Have an Empty Thought

Let me have an empty thought
bubble over a scene of madness.

The hero disarms the nuke.
The manufacturer builds three more.

Even now fallout is inevitable
Even now
fallout is inevitable.

See the living on the sidewalks
tossing their disposables
in the many bins lining the doorways of the many storefronts.

Recycling symbol
has become a symbol.
– which reminds me,
In America the time for symbols is returning –

Man on the courthouse steps
with the many pillars
still propping up the old gods.
