At Palisades Nuclear Power Plant

March 15, 2011

Waves lap the sand the sand the sand
and while we keep silence, the silence of Annabelle Lee
a plutonium fuel rod ticks away
stored on the dunes where we used to play.
We played Elephants on a Spider Web
Sword of Damocles
Go Fish.
Peaceful atoms take millennia
to decay.
–Barbara Spring

excerpted from my book, The Wilderness Within
