FROM AN UNATTRIBUTED SOURCE
Ten more have died today,
There's a crossbow on the wall.
a colony of new garbage bags,
I eulogized the hill to your house,

Beneath a newspaper on a sidewalk near Western
We leave our used hands as an offering,
They've left two tanks in the parking lot
ON Surplus: second of three poems about the Badger Army Ammunition Plant in Baraboo, WI, now a gutted behemmoth of an ammo plant that created ballistics and propellants for the U.S. Army beginning in 1943. In the early 90's it was discovered that 50 years of improperly disposed-of chemicals and explosives had severly polluted the soil and drinking water of many communities and farm families within two miles of the plant, as well as many water run-offs into the Wisconsin River.
