interstate

the steel gray sky weeps

wipers smear the cold, icy tears across the windshield

the world rushes past at 65 miles an hour

former prairies, forests and farmland

being served up in single-serving, disposable containers

infested with humanity

paved over with

strip malls

mcdonald’s

wal-marts

the steel gray sky weeps

  1. I like the way you open and close with the same line - but it's so much more by the time we get to it the second time.

    May I suggest you don't need 'cold' AND 'icy'? Pick one!
