Vacation Destination: Chernobyl

about the night before
the meltdown 

a ride on the Ferris wheel 
the bumper cars colliding
sundown and 
Reactor 4 is fine

is the thirty year memory
of the night before
seared like a tree shadow
against a barn 
in the flash, then gone?

do the tourists
who enter the Exclusion Zone
to see the mutated catfish
patrolling the cooling ponds
only hope to spot a radioactive wolf?

or do they even wonder
what tomorrow will bring?
