Shock and Awe, Iraq, 2003
Below the storm, stood blind bodies inside the yellow cloud. But the eyes of the bombs saw inside the cloud into the dark intentions of the bodies. Like, if you slit a fish longitudinally and place its seamed belly across a plate, any radioactive tissue will expose on film: cells forgetting themselves, blinking gold gold gold. Like the tainted thistle diving its roots 20 feet down sucking strontium-90 and cesium; in it came through the hollow throat of the plant: in came the soil’s dark drink. How they snipped off its seeding head. These are those people these are those people.
