Poem: Explosions

Explosions

 

The crash, the juxtaposition, the jagged sharp edge

The mismatched piece

Foreground smashes into background; that’s

Where the energy comes from

 

News: that difference that

Makes a difference

 

But everyday, now, the same news, the wash of cant and can’t,

Eliminate difference

On a solitary walk

The front page of the Daily News lies frozen in the snow
