avalanche

crushed under a thousand rocks
ice and snow and mud and the dead and dying
bones broken and splintered
can this framework be repaired?

bandages and salves
weeks and months and a psychiatrist too
bruises and disfigurement
linger
on

looking up at a wall of destruction
a cacophony of debris raining down
what is there to feel
except despair?
