He reckons the world
with a jaundiced eye,
white-knuckle nausea,
slow-motion
car crash
unfolding,
rolling,
careening downhill
to the lip of the
swallowing sea.

And so he thinks only
through his teeth.

Oh i like this one.
The image is clear. And is a perfect metaphor against the title.

Perfect.

Very cool! I love the metaphore. Stuck on it reading it again now.
