what if a nicer atom gave us flowers,
and tokyo surrendered its heart in gratitude;
a million japs had flowers to eat,
and sang flowers back as japanese,
all that's gone,
come back as ghosts
what if a sweeter bomber dropped gardenias
on the feathers of the emperor's black duck --
great luck to the children:
born, instead of blind
would live alive
the atom bomb
took so much

the nature of my game? older than the devil. original good, except on occasion.
what great mouth feel. tbh this is really good.
irony meets idealism to drop a bomb in our reflections on the imagery there-in -- what-if critiques we're made with the awe-of-alacrity instead of malevolent soliloquies -- what-if poets we're bones that sprouted flowers -- what-if words had an effect upon reality like some abracadabra simile-smiles that changed the course of dis-course -- loved the play here Cad and the implicit music
