when large things collide
all you can do is watch
pop-up blocker doesn't cut it
this is gronderous

where we stand
is not an ice floe shattered
so much as the sound
of its shattering

rigors & veils divide us
blue skies like wounds still tender
vanishing pilgrim
not to the light

here in the thick of traffic
hearing the mischief rattle
signs fail to guide us
teachers have passed

colors of darkness parsing
codex with too much missing
blue skies still tender
turn if you can
