The Death Of The Ball Turret Gunner

Written by: Randall Jarrell | Biography
 | Quotes (12) |
 From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,
And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life, I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.
