Treasure Island

Mason Maestro


Payload


Like a pulse
Like a beacon
Like a falling atom bomb
We remain unperturbed by the joy and the madness
That we encounter with man-made weather
We’ve seen it all along
In the news and your trembling tea
Like a twitch in a man dying
The shaking ground to some degree
There's a far land where the wind blows
Another earthquake in Japan
Like a crowing crow in silence
Watch the atmospheric halo
It's the radiating payload
Like ultraviolet light
Oh, it’s electromagnetic
And ain’t it all pathetic
Ionosphere vibration
Now the waves reach the shore
We’ve seen it all before
In New Orleans and Haiti
Somehow for auroral research
Aimed with high frequency
There’s a lost home where the flood flows
The mother crushed by a floating van
Like whisper whisked to violence
Watch the atmospheric halo
It's the radiating payload

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
