ICY HEAD-LINES

55 CAR PILEUP ON ICY INTERSTATE

We move nearer to our
own weight,
then, with the heft of our machine's,
we continue moving too fast, only to pile up,
as the dead weight grows most unbearable.

TRUCK FALLS FRIM HIGHWAY, EXPLODES

One fell down another exploded
One noise, like a scream for help
the other, a metal scraping fire..

IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT GIRAFFES

I refuse to imagine a world without giraffes
I refuse to imagine a world that doesn't marvel
I refuse to imagine a world without great wonder
I refuse to imagine such avoidable ugliness
