Intent to Document

Gawking passersby
jumping banisters
to conclusions

front-row seat
to shattered-glass show
placing under-breath bets

as to how crumpled steel box
went airborne
landed on passenger’s side
trapping one inside

intent to document

but camera’s hand froze
when they pulled driver free
limp & lifeless

show’s over folks
nothing to see here
go back to your regularly
scheduled programming

will have to check the lunchtime news
reports to see if we made it

  1. Great use of the shutter-like phrasing early on, very neat considering the theme, gotta love that, different situation but I wanted to snap a pic of this cardinal, which I never see around me, so I was creeping in very slowly trying to get the best shot when this ordinary robin popped in, scared the cardinal off, I tried reacting quickly but got nothing but tree- I think I actually quoted officer barbrady, nothing to see here people, carry on. Excellent write Steve.
