Van Allen’s Summer

 

what are they
waiting for?

their barb-wired
no man’s land, bristling
antennae.

messages received but not
understood. the earth’s aura
crumbling.

voices burn from the transmitters.
electricity
crackles on a time-switch.

what world are they trying
to pull?

    I like this poem – it has a kind of openness that allows thought to travel in it, yet it’s not dogmatic.

    • Thanks for your positive response to the poem.
      Sorry I don’t have Helen’s contact details – the it editor does. I’ll forward him your request.
      John

      There are definate prmoelbs with this article. In some counties the Constable must Bill for each of his deputy constables and then pay them himself. Many of these Constables have 4 or 5 Deputies. It would not be abnormal for them to put on those types of miles for that many men. It also appears that these prmoelbs are occurring in just 4 counties out of 67 in PA. I think the individuals should be addressed and if found to be engaged in illegal activity appropriate action should be taken. Seeing all of the corruption in Harrisburg, maybe this legislature is just trying to take some of the heat off of himself.
