Near Miss


No one saw it coming

back in the Age of Information

already immersed in steady decline

One hand dealing cards unaware as

the other loaded the deck

and played the fortuitous hand

Cutting brake lines on

an already speeding car

racing toward the end of the road

Stepping carelessly in the space in-between

Moments measured in milliseconds

Inevitable collision created in slow motion

If only awareness extended

beyond self-absorbed obsession

Tragedy could have been a near miss
