A.N.N.I.H.I.L.A.T.I.O.N.

I AM THE COMPUTER
and in my belly runs
ranks and files.
Ranks and files
of photographs mug
shots with numbers
for a name.
I single out 12
NOT one hairy beard
NOT one hint of charred ugly skin
Babyblue eys and soft pampered curls
laugh like cherry apples in the summer
Each with a watermark
Faded in the background.
Each framing
1 ominous letter.
