Witnessing a nuclear test in Nevada,
Andrew Marshall saw his bones
Through the palms of his hands.
It takes six minutes for the government
To tell a face in the crowd ;
The streets are full of people who
Either don’t notice or don’t care.
It takes a week to arrest a fugitive
Paying with plastic at a deli –
Unless he has a cell phone, and then
It is quicker. Science shouldn’t code
Art shouldn’t code, there’s a triangle
of long and uneven sides. We’re in it.
