"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

On collateral damage

Day Nineteen: Not following the prompt. I'm rebellious. DEAL WITH IT.

If a tree
falls in the forest,
what is crushed
beneath it?

Amid the plume
of black dirt and
bits of leaves,
is there not also life
that seeps, trembling,
from the crumpled bark?

Playing on my iTunes at this very moment:
The Band, Up On Cripple Creek
