Doesn’t Sound So Bad | A Poem by JD DeHart

Doomsday doesn’t sound so bad
after all

If the neighborhood is no longer
overrun by what seems to be a league
of feral cats, if they all perish

If the radio gains some silence
and we have more than a crackle
of signal lost to keep us enamored

If there are still rivers where we can
sit, even with two heads instead of one,
basking in an atomic afterglow.
