Calving

January 10, 2012

the window was shoved open
and there was the coast of Greenland
Astounding  Awesome
giving birth to chunks of ice
the size of cities
leaving trails across the border of the Atlantic
100x’s the size of the one being left
30,000 ft in the sky
thats all crazy
the coast extended into haze
the white of the Land became
that of the clouds
far above , far below
the giant blocks of ice become the sea
i imagine the size and the spectacle
under great weight and pressure
the crack and collapse
rushing into the ocean
the Land sheds it’s edges
i change the same and at glacial speeds
