Belle View

Scores of terminals
peer into a lit nerve center.
Blank blinking eyes
lead to a glass wall.
Credit
Debit
on the payroll.
“This is what we call the ‘War Room’”.
Cornfields spread
from hulking redbrick warehouses.
Gleaming western suburbs graze
on Sophisticated Processing.
Anywhere in the world
Absolute
Certain
Instant
Capacity to Cope
with the base of the flood.
U.S. Strategic Air Command
buried in rolling farmland,
modest roots for a boom zone
installed in a daze.
