By Christine Redman-Waldeyer

The sudden sting
of my eyes
surprised me

Click, click my keys
have been burning notes
to lecture—
The Cold War...

And passing over,
Albert Einstein whose
math made possible atomic power

He grimly said, “The War that came after WWIII,
would be fought with stones.”

It’s not real I tell myself, history...
Something of a fairy tale,
Some pathos of mythomania
Some classroom to remember you’re
the common man

And the sudden sting,
I theorize
is intuition



CHRISTINE REDMAN-WALDEYER has done a number of publications of poetry, including a childrens book, Around the World with Rosalie.
