            During the week, we build bombs.
            The bombs look like mushrooms—like a field of fungi stretching to every horizon. In the low light, the factory floor is without walls, without ceiling. There's only us and the bombs--and there are so many more of them than us.

We build bombs to kill young men. We build bombs to make widows of girls like us. We build bombs to make money, to buy food, to stay alive, to build more bombs.
