“Wreck”

Red and blue lights

Scream danger 

Their shadows imprinted

On a starless sky

But here

Beneath bent steel

And twisted glass

The silence echoes off of

Jagged shards

Their edges cutting into

Numb flesh

Blue with the mapping 

Of a thousand rivers

Having lost their streams 

Of red.

The silence breaks

Like a glass under pressure,

Roars of confusion 

Pierce the numbness in her mind

She is carried away 

Suspended on a bed of noise

Calling for a silence

That never returns
