MOLOCH


Military.
Idolatry.
Hellfire missile.
Incendiary.

Jet fuel
polystyrene gel
fire bomb.
Napalm
disguised as
MK-77 Mod 5

laid down by Cobras
sweeping in low
almost hidden
in smoke exploding
from artillery
in mushroom clouds
carrying pieces
which ignite
before they strike ground
in a screen of fire
inextinguishable by water
pyre
dedicated
to
MOLOCH

Military idolatry.
This rain of fire
fell on the city.

The men, the women
and the children struck
began to burn in a coating
of white phosphorous.

Bodies, clothes largely intact,
skin dissolved, caramelized,
some still in their beds,
in fact, human remains
the consistency of leather
bore the mark of Cain,
the obscene burn signature
of
MOLOCH
melting
flesh to the bone
groaning
moaning
