Green glass

Given that Sing Sing’s electric
chair was for Ethel, for whom
is the atomic bomb? Is it just

for US and how dare a citizen
of our side of a map share the
basics of an unconscionable

machine with the other side of
that map? If only Ethel had
imparted a more explosive

secret: how to see beyond the
contrivances that separate us
enough to defy a death threat.

(And perhaps she did.)

Written after signing this petition.
