Weekly feature by: Holly Day

I have spent every day of my life
worrying about the oil crises, AIDS, what is and is not on
the endangered species list
raw sewage in swimming pools, the drinking water
having food on the table, getting/not getting pregnant
exposure to citywide pesticide sprayings,
and I wish

it could be just about The Bomb, any one of The Bombs
something simple, concrete
a great, bloated, careless god confined
to a specific locale
entirely destructive and fear-worthy but
only if actually invoked.
