This is a shaped poem. An atomic bomb.
The Atom’s Heart


Split the atom's heart, and lo!
Within it thou wilt find a sun!
Persian Mystic Poem


The sun
within the atom's heart
burst forth.
Revealing a power never seen before.
Creating a mushroom rising from the desert floor.
Reality and illusion melted; congealed as glassy beads.
Yesterday passed, buried beneath White Sands.
The present gave birth to a future unknown and feared.
Humanity
survived
march ed
on .
Carrying
with it
t h e
knowled-
age taken
from the
atom' s
heart .
