April 4: worker

worker

walking in and
cleaning up debris
from earthquake
and tsunami.
     fukushima.

hero.

radiation eating
greedily with flecks
of meat being spat
as a sneeze blows
her foul wind to
the city reminiscent
of another day.
     heroshima.

hero.

loving glances
towards pictures
of grandchildren
deep sighs and placing
one foot in front
of the other
walking in
cleaning up debris.

hero.
