Plutonium

Plutonium

The effects of radioactivity cannot be described in words

it’s a degree of pain

like the ultraviolence played on your skin

the last time man who wasn’t radioactive

was given 3 shots of whiskey and a death sentence

‘one must still get to die like a man’

where i live, radioactivity is

a bullet that’s too big for the chamber but still fits in

like moulding a sculpture from the inside

perhaps men have been under medusa’s gaze too long

the last woman who wasn’t radioactive

was given 3 shots of whiskey and a mouth sewed shut

‘one must still get to die, trying to be a woman’

4 revolutions and a series of stifling decay are all you need

the price for personal orientation is death.

and 3 shots of whiskey.
