This poem was featured on and it also won first prize at the Michigan State University Oakland Poetry Contest. Palisades is not too far from where I live.

At Palisades Nuclear Power Plant

Waves lap the sand the sand the sand
and while we keep silence, the silence of Annabelle Lee
a plutonium fuel rod ticks away
stored on the dunes where we used to play.

We played elephants on a spider web
Sword of Damocles
Go Fish.

Peaceful atoms take millennia
to decay.

The Dynamic Great Lakes

Second, this poem made me get out my Poe anthology when I saw the Annabelle Lee alliteration. I like the modern day take on the poem, meaning the nuclear power plant. Good work and congratulations on your award.
