Ice Debris

Collisions start in cracks that widen
Fissures open and the air rushes between
Drops of destruction fall and drop into sea
and it rises to meet the eye of the storms smile
soon they are fighting in the streets
calm never speaks its forgotten slumber
the air is thick with fire and you can breathe
it all in wishing for peace and quiet
and happy green countryside where the animals
breed and feed our young

More than a predator
Less than a murderer
just feed them until dark
and then let them sleep
safe in barns
safe from the foxes
and children
who fight

relax under trees
make love in the car
spending a Saturday afternoon
before its too late
and the breaking of dawn
the standing in the cold
down animal farm

brighten your face with flooded lights
stretch your smile from east to west
twist your nose until your face follows
and your ears glow
in the gloom,
in the darkness
we try to become invisible
except its eyes are red
and see everything
