Our fathers built the town

For our mothers

Our mothers out at the Area

Caring instead for reactions, decay,

Worrying over one-hundreds, three-hundreds.

When she was born there was an outage

And came second to science.

But Hanford built the family

My father flying over.

Sagebrush shade and plane shadows

We played in the river

Water like a blanket over our desert forms

That same blanket of heat crept over the town

Escaped the gates- endless gates

Meandered down 240, Twin Bridges, Grosscup

Blew in half-heartedly across the water

Haunted front porches front yards.

The children had chemistry in their veins

Too green eyes

Her terrible love and wrenching hate for it…

And she didn’t want to live it anymore.

I wonder if Yokohama and Glasgow and Seattle

Are enough distance for her

Far enough away.

Our fathers built the town

For our mothers

But Hanford built the family

My father flying over.
