James Bogan – A Charm To Explode Popcorn
O Terrorist of the vegetable world
burst your golden prison!
O Second Cousin of the Mexican jumping-Bean
the summer sun’s booming energy
compacted within your shell release!
O Nova-Nut, microbang image of
our macrobang cosmos–
hear my conjuring voice and expand!
Let popping kernel comets careen
about the kitchen.
O Molotov Cocktail of the Peaceful
Maize Family–even after
your cataclysmic birth
you remain volatile–
leaping out of hands
levitous to the last
O Noble Dynamite Corn–
June 21 1982 Earth First!
