Give Me Judgment Day! [Today's News Poem Part 3, by Khakjaan Wessington, May 25, 2012]

III. Ocean Beach Salutes

Undercut by undertow:
Dune attrits the refuse.
Take another foot away,
Bury me at sea.
Fetch another dog's bone,
Cast another cat's paw;
Swallow all the golden carp
Swimming in the Park.

When you drive away from me and watch my windmills wave you off,
Wave your parents waiving guilt;
Know I'm waving too, and fro, as flotsam follows you
And adds the former parts of you to me.
We bark and meow and chirp with wooden planks and plastic bags of stubbed out butts,
Gurgling our frisky song you loved so much;
But you've moved away from us, move so fast, you're driving us away when all we do is wave
And you won't see, because the water's in your eyes,
Exactly like the time you dove your bath and let out bubbles,
Rising to breath and mother and towels of fur.

“Wang Jianlin, a rags-to-riches tycoon, is taking over AMC Entertainment, North America’s second-largest movie theater chain behind Regal Entertainment. And he is promising to integrate it into a new, made in China, global brand called the Wanda Group... “He always has a vision,” Mr. Wang, no relation, said. “When everybody was doing housing property, he jumped out to focus on commercial property. When everybody was chasing commercial property, he was eyeing culture and tourism — the industries that the government is stressing and cultivating.””
—DAVID BARBOZA, The New York Times, May 24, 2012
