8:15am

Smooth, plump and with little strain
Enola Gay ..... gives birth
to this progeny of the rational mind

one final push ..... and
from her open belly
Little Boy quietly falls

becomes
..... ..... ..... "the greatest thing in history"

in his light unnatural ..... as atoms unbind
people fade to garish frescos

shadows
..... ..... ..... printed on the few
..... ..... ..... standing walls

and flesh becomes a mystery
as the children of Hiroshima
dissolve to the stuff of rainbows

their promise now realised
on a different plane.
