Poem of the Week!

By Book Club on Oct 7, 09 07:00 AM

It's the first poem from our October poet Mario Petruccio, an amazing 21st century polymath, not only a poet but a scientist, ecologist and cultural commentator. I hope you made it along to the screening of Heavy Water his "poem-documentary" at the Star and Shadow Cinema but, if you couldn't make it, you can read along with his poems throughout October and get a flavour of the man and his work.

LAST WISH‹(Chernobyl, 1986)

You bury me in concrete. Bury me
in lead. Rather I was buried‹
with a bullet in the head.

You seal me in powder. Cut the hair‹
last. Then take the trimmings‹
and seal them in glass.

You wrap me in plastic. Wash me
‹in foam. Weld the box airless
and ram the box home.

For each tomb that's hidden a green‹
soldier turns. None decomposes.
Nothing for worms.

A buckle. A pencil. Break one thing‹
I left. Give some small part of me‹
ordinary death.

Mario Petrucci
(From Heavy Water)
