10:34 Am. Somewhere in the Pacific

10:34 Am. Somewhere in the Pacific

The thunder
light and heat
rains down
on our backs.
Our limbs melt,
brains liquify,
heads crack,
and all pour
into the ground.
Two pillars
support
the cloud.
The earth
and our
boneʼs ashes
disintegrate
into a swirling
circular cloud,
of the brutality
of men .
They are
little boys,
sending little boys ,
and causing little boys
to die.
