Yokohama protest.

armored men rush me on base.

my “neon” blonde hair *

I frosted my hair silver/white in Japan…

got attention and got me into traffic

at a corner where it was difficult to

cut into the line at the “T” in the road

while they looked at the American lady

with the funny hair and the blonde child.

(1966 ish)

atomic testing

deep in hospital bowels

under cement mixer *

 

The machine they had aimed at

my throat looked like a giant cement mixer.

When the tech left the room, they’d say

“don’t move” !  “No problem !”
