In the background

   softly the music plays

The darkness attacked

   by twittering candle lights

the clinking of melting ice

   breaks the silence


The road dark,

   black and slippery

The lights coming

   growing faster and bigger

Two thousand pounds

   of steel collide

A lion slaying a gazelle

   crash, shattered glass

Twisted metal


Red lights flashing

  the yellow tape  holds back

A  crowd gathers

   voices in the background


Moans and groans

   blood flowing like tears

Fade to black


Silence broken

   a ringing phone

Slowly the glass falls
