Fading

News of

Fukushima

fading here

the disaster cycle

has gone the distance

the wheels fell off

the news is limited

sound bites are temporary creatures

attention spans are squat and stunted

thoughts move to more graspable

disasters

we can only take so much on board

radioactivity hangs around

too long

for an ADHD society

powers that B

wait for us to forget

they’re counting on it

for business as usual
