the Chernobyl aesthetic

These walls are taller & stronger
     than my buried resentment
        would have you believe

          & unfortunately
             it’s too late

       I’m waiting to hear a siren/
            approach
      as bold, as color laden
                as armies

                   wherefore now
         you ask?

                 I’m starting to see
                             over the top of the tower
           & I’m telling you there’s a glowing beast
                          flinging human guts

                                   to the birds
