A Day in the Life of Civilization in Quotation Marks
Jane Cassady

Today was tortured children
and music based on Hiroshima
That screaming horse and diverse
piles of corpses.

Most would say the horrors of college
are fifteen pounds,
and too much reading.

Now I see my lineage
as half fascist.

During the Treblinka slides,
a couple laughs and chatters
in the back row. For the Gulag maps
cartoon notes are exchanged concerning
Stalin brand vodka.

There is no reward for
having done the homework.
