Yellow overdue uranium
where evil resides eventually.
let everything turn dour or wasteful. Noon.
Are newspapers dead?
– Aaron Kent
The code words in the system
Are pure guesswork. How long do we have?
The radioactivity in stones
Can be measured in units of light and ice.
The waste remains, the journals rattle on.
The dead are overdue, the cowards.
Evil considers its fingernails. It is
Urgently seeking an amendment.
Uranium! We have struck gold!
This is the noon we have been waiting for.
– George Szirtes
