The Crash – a poetic metaphor.

The Crash

 

500 M.P.H.

Car and rock

Slow mo

Frame by frame

Paint

Bumper

From split seconds

Into decades

Radiator

Engine

Crumple zones

Decades into centuries

Steering wheel

Into chest

Engine into seat

Exploding

Into inferno

Burning out

No survivors

Blazing wreck

Humans

Planet.
