Writing Exercise 4

Word: Catastrophism

slick Buffalo roads and the haze
of a night time rain illuminated by white headlight
seven flips into the long grass ditch
an early labor
an emergency caesarean
in the nearest hospital with nurses in white keds

a husbands white face pocked with new scars
watching like a doe
as his bride turns pale without much blood

divine or odds
a mother holds her pasty newborn
in the soft glow of moonlight
