Category: A Cold War Poem

face white
deep breath
hold tight
run down
look round
hope hard

ten seconds
ten years
dull moans
shrieked fears
wild thoughts
no tears
eyes wide
all ears

push shove
hide fast
screen view
whole past

breathe deep
make haste
taste death
bad taste
sky tear
bright light
no air
stomach tight

flame flash
all ash
