today a bomb

huge, tremendous, bigly


the word drop

in music means to switch

the rhythm 

drop a beat

water drops from clouds

from eaves and leaves

stock markets drop 

in elementary we sang

a spring concert, the gym hot

students began dropping

from the heat and anxiety

of performing for a crowd

moose antlers drop in winter

and small round brown turds

fall into little piles from their ass

moose droppings

in Talkeetna, a celebration 

Moose Dropping Festival

they don't drop moose from planes

that would be a horrific bloody mess

most days, the idea of a tourist

asking about moose 

falling from high

brings a smile

but not today

with this bomb

and warnings of more
