Freeze

try to see the moment when the
rain ceases and the snow begins,
try to divide it evenly, and
hold it in your heart,
try to convince them all there is a difference
when the wheels skid, spin, slip, flip,
try to see the moment when
traversal turns to terror when
a day becomes The Day
and you’ll find,
with all sudden and terrible changes,
there is never truly just one moment
where everything went wrong
