Here Then in Our Helmets

 

David Breeden

 

Light streams in
from all directions
as it will in a shot
on a planet from
a ’50s comic, so

We will wear our bubble
helmets, a 360
view if only our old
Homo sapiens
necks cooperate

Yes our lasers will
be primed for
business then since
alien life forms
most surely will

be communist
and deserve
instant execution
as soon as we
get off this damn

superstitious
planet where
gravity acts like
the hesitation
of egg heads

There in the ’50s
there’s a future in
bubble helmets and
assumptions among
the molded pages

Then we will see
anew in all directions
the light streaming

if only our old
primate heads will
embrace latitudes

and death
and death
