Beautiful Broken Day

Beautiful Broken Day

A Poem by Poe Redd

during the drive through Mexico

twelve did die
the mountain said
with no respect for lines
and headlights glare now
and the sun's disappeared
has the sun really left us?
tucked away between the mountains
and was that a thank you?
that, minutes ago, stretched their necks
to glimpse the sun in evanescence
mountains become the clouds
she whispers
her hair turning grey
but the light is slipping away
we're wound up in fear
and he goes so fast
pitting machine against distance
divided by time
that no number does the stress justice
unless it is one
holding still.
