January 3rd, 2003

On a cold, clear day
a teenage boy hurled
an chunk of ice the size of a basketball
off the rail of the overpass

A family of five was driving home
from an afternoon of skiing in the Poconos
the kids were in the back, the mother was asleep
in the passenger seat

On a clear, cold day
an 18 pound ball of ice
fell through the air
toward the highway, toward the traffic
and has not landed yet
