Nuclear Shadows

I've seen pictures -
Ground zero evaporated
Like puddles in the aftersun
Of rain. I wonder,
How did it feel to kill
So many in one
Breath, their last,
And fly away smiling?
I don't blame you.
You were taking orders,
But the pale oriental
Outlines, the shelter
Of bodies against
The radiation,
Cannot understand that
Like us, sensible people,
And will never have a chance.
