Plutonian Ode1978IWhat new element before us unborn in nature? Is therea new thing under the Sun?
At last inquisitive Whitman a modern epic, detonative,Scientific theme
First penned unmindful by Doctor Seaborg with poison-ous hand, named for Death's planet through thesea beyond Uranus
whose chthonic ore fathers this magma-teared Lord ofHades, Sire of avenging Furies, billionaire Hell-King worshipped once
with black sheep throats cut, priests's face averted fromunderground mysteries in single temple at Eleusis,
Spring-green Persephone nuptialed to his inevitableShade, Demeter mother of asphodel weeping dew,
her daughter stored in salty caverns under white snow,black hail, grey winter rain or Polar ice, immemor-able seasons before
Fish flew in Heaven, before a Ram died by the starrybush, before the Bull stamped sky and earth
or Twins inscribed their memories in clay or Crab'dflood
washed memory from the skull, or Lion sniffed thelilac breeze in Eden--
Before the Great Year began turning its twelve signs,ere constellations wheeled for twenty-four thousandsunny years
slowly round their axis in Sagittarius, one hundredsixty-seven thousand times returning to this nightRadioactive Nemesis were you there at the beginningblack dumb tongueless unsmelling blast of Disil-lusion?
I manifest your Baptismal Word after four billion years
I guess your birthday in Earthling Night, I salute yourdreadful presence last majestic as the Gods,
Sabaot, Jehova, Astapheus, Adonaeus, Elohim, Iao,Ialdabaoth, Aeon from Aeon born ignorant in anAbyss of Light,
Sophia's reflections glittering thoughtful galaxies, whirl-pools of starspume silver-thin as hairs of Einstein!
Father Whitman I celebrate a matter that renders Selfoblivion!
Grand Subject that annihilates inky hands & pages'prayers, old orators' inspired Immortalities,
I begin your chant, openmouthed exhaling into spacioussky over silent mills at Hanford, Savannah River,Rocky Flats, Pantex, Burlington, Albuquerque
I yell thru Washington, South Carolina, Colorado,Texas, Iowa, New Mexico,
Where nuclear reactors creat a new Thing under theSun, where Rockwell war-plants fabricate this deathstuff trigger in nitrogen baths,
Hanger-Silas Mason assembles the terrified weaponsecret by ten thousands, & where Manzano Moun-tain boasts to store
its dreadful decay through two hundred forty milleniawhile our Galaxy spirals around its nebulous core.
I enter your secret places with my mind, I speak withyour presence, I roar your Lion Roar with mortalmouth.
One microgram inspired to one lung, ten pounds ofheavy metal dust adrift slow motion over greyAlps
the breadth of the planet, how long before your radiancespeeds blight and death to sentient beings?
Enter my body or not I carol my spirit inside you,Unnaproachable Weight,
O heavy heavy Element awakened I vocalize your con-sciousness to six worlds
I chant your absolute Vanity.Yeah monster of Angerbirthed in fear O most
Ignorant matter ever created unnatural to Earth! Delusionof metal empires!
Destroyer of lying Scientists! Devourer of covetousGenerals, Incinerator of Armies & Melter of Wars!
Judgement of judgements, Divine Wind over vengefulnations, Molester of Presidents, Death-Scandal ofCapital politics! Ah civilizations stupidly indus-trious!
Canker-Hex on multitudes learned or illiterate! Manu-factured Spectre of human reason! O solidifiedimago of practicioner in Black Arts
I dare your reality, I challenge your very being! Ipublish your cause and effect!
I turn the wheel of Mind on your three hundred tons!Your name enters mankind's ear! I embody yourultimate powers!
My oratory advances on your vaunted Mystery! Thisbreath dispels your braggart fears! I sing yourform at last
behind your concrete & iron walls inside your fortressof rubber & translucent silicon shields in filteredcabinets and baths of lathe oil,
My voice resounds through robot glove boxes & ignotcans and echoes in electric vaults inert of atmo-sphere,
I enter with spirit out loud into your fuel rod drumsunderground on soundless thrones and beds oflead
O density! This weightless anthem trumpets transcendentthrough hidden chambers and breaks throughiron doors into the Infernal Room!
Over your dreadful vibration this measured harmonyfloats audible, these jubilant tones are honey andmilk and wine-sweet water
Poured on the stone black floor, these syllables arebarley groats I scatter on the Reactor's core,I call your name with hollow vowels, I psalm your Fateclose by, my breath near deathless ever at yourside
to Spell your destiny, I set this verse prophetic on yourmausoleum walls to seal you up Eternally withDiamond Truth!O doomed Plutonium.IIThe Bar surveys Plutonian history from midnightlit with Mercury Vapor streetlamps till in dawn'searly light
he contemplates a tranquil politic spaced out betweenNations' thought-forms proliferating bureaucratic
& horrific arm'd, Satanic industries projected suddenwith Five Hundred Billion Dollar Strength
around the world same time this text is set in Boulder,Colorado before front range of Rocky Mountains
twelve miles north of Rocky Flats Nuclear Facility inUnited States of North America, Western Hemi-sphere
of planet Earth six months and fourteen days aroundour Solar System in a Spiral Galaxy
the local year after Dominion of the last God nineteenhundred seventy eight
Completed as yellow hazed dawn clouds brighten East,Denver city white below
Blue sky transparent rising empty deep & spacious to amorning star high over the balconyabove some autos sat with wheels to curb downhillfrom Flatiron's jagged pine ridge,
sunlit mountain meadows sloped to rust-red sandstonecliffs above brick townhouse roofs
as sparrows waked whistling through Marine Street'ssummer green leafed trees.IIIThis ode to you O Poets and Orators to come, youfather Whitman as I join your side, you Congressand American people,
you present meditators, spiritual friends & teachers,you O Master of the Diamond Arts,
Take this wheel of syllables in hand, these vowels andconsonants to breath's end
take this inhalation of black poison to your heart, breathout this blessing from your breast on our creationforests cities oceans deserts rocky flats and mountainsin the Ten Directions pacify with exhalation,
enrich this Plutonian Ode to explode its empty thunderthrough earthen thought-worlds
Magnetize this howl with heartless compassion, destroythis mountain of Plutonium with ordinary mindand body speech,
thus empower this Mind-guard spirit gone out, goneout, gone beyond, gone beyond me, Wake space,so Ah!
