Ozone Journal — Pulitzer Prize Award and National Poetry Month

Ozone Journal
Bach’s cantata in B-flat minor in the cassette,
we lounged under the greenhouse-sky, the UVBs hacking
at the acids and oxides and then I could hear the difference
between an oboe and a bassoon
at the river’s edge under cover—
trees breathed in our respiration;
there was something on the other side of the river,
something both of us were itching toward—
radical bonds were broken, history became science.
We were never the same.
By Peter Balakianfrom "Ozone Journal," awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize
