Paper Cranes

Poetry for Peace Contest

The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.

Below is one of the contest entries.

Plutonium

Une
raideur torticole
à planté son couteau
dans la plèbe et hante
de rumeurs assassines
les rêves
arboricoles.
Plus
tôt
Ni
Homme
Ni
bête
ne
percevait
du ciel un tel effroi.

Plût aux hommes
le contentement de la flamme
cuisant la pâte et noircissant les chairs 

— Laurent Chaineux
