XV "NAGASAKI"

NAGASAKI

The target of Kokura covered by clouds, two B-29s on to Nagasaki.
Chased by more clouds.
Mitsubishi Steelworks skirting the town the new target.
Drop it!

Just above Uragami Cathedral it exploded.
Instantaneously annihilating the priests and believers and all.
The cathedral at the center.
Endless concentric halo-like circles of dead human beings.

In Nagasaki it was a plutonium bomb.
Stronger than the one in Hiroshima.
Nagasaki in ruins 140,000 killed.
One more Atomic Bomb.
