title chaina 2

the shards of glass on the black topped road

glitter like diamonds in the dark

passing headlights pay no attention

for they have become a common sight

yet, they must have only cut deep into someone’s skin

yet, they must have only pierced through someone’s veins

was it the rear view mirror, the sidelight?

or

was it the entire windshield?

it doesn’t matter

under those speeding tires

even diamonds become dust in the wind.
