We Need the Bomb

By Scott Laudati

we turned on the tv

and they said, “we have

the bomb, they

have the bomb,

the one’s to the

north

and the west

have the bomb,

but now

THEY

are trying

to get

the bomb

and when they

do

the world will finally

go out

as it

came in-

the cataclysm of

fission and fusion

and all the fury

of a billion

years of anger,

the madness of good men,

and with their deaths

will go

the anger

as it gets brought

back

to the place-

wherever that

place is

that

anger comes from.

 

I was stoned enough

to be

afraid

but you sat with

me and drank

something made

for a

vacation

we never

went on

and you said,

“well,

we better get

the bomb before

they do.” And

you took me

to the bedroom. And

for the first time

you

were violent

and you

were terrifying

and the wall shook

and i

went

blind

with helpless orgasm.

 

i’m not sure what the

bomb

will look like

on the day all the leaders

get together

and decide to play

a big game

of dodgeball,

but

for the andromedans,

and the reptilians

watching

from the moon—

it’ll probably

look like

the earth

going

blind

with helpless orgasm.
