Weapons of Mass Creation

Invention is the mother of necessity

giving birth to the spark that gave light its breath

to the splitting of the atom

this mother would have fooled Solomon

how Santos-Dumont wept as his gift of flight became a weapon of war

how we blame God

for the cruelty of humanity

when we can fly above on the same wings

that carried the Enola Gay over Hiroshima

are the same that can carry our love back home across the sea.
