David S. Pointer


At the PCB Superfund
Cleanup Site not much
went on, but silence
percolated fear like
fresh coffee, and if
an unauthorized guard
went exploring through
the chemicals-he got fired
and when the Mayor
wanted to consult with
onsite FBI he got a
special white suit that
he modeled like a mini-
Martian from my child-
hood wrapped in a honey
combed coil cape running
around the toxic black
barrels issuing muffled
orders to the big boys
nobody bothered to
decipher or understand

David reads "Memories of Holden, MO":
