bags like octopi in frozen lament

invisible patches
of black ice linger
as the sunlight
becomes electrified
over frozen patches
of yellow grass

the wind hammers at
the car as i drive
far too fast already
lost in thought as the
highway blurs into a
dreamshatter artery

plastic bags flutter
waiting for the chance
to cross unabated by
the semis chugging down
through a wasteland of
texas tundra toward home

a surreal subaquatic
refraction masking the
frigid scenic hellscape
thw birds are still images
hoverinf in static as i
dissociate to the next call
