A Momentary Lapse of Fiction

Energy Beam, Sea to Sky Highway, Tantalus Lookout, North of Squamish, British Columbia, Canada
The energy pulse slammed into the car
Which quivered briefly
Before vapourizing with a flash
Brighter than the beam
Which destroyed it

As the momentary daylight faded
The mist which was once my Toyota
Settled into the crater
That had been a parking lot

I hoped the owner
Of that formidable weapon
Hadn’t acquired my new position

The concrete barrier I’d sheltered behind
Suddenly seemed feeble protection

Night returned and I got the fuck outta there

Energy Beam
Tantalus Lookout
Sea to Sky Highway
North of Squamish
British Columbia, Canada, 2016
Couldn’t resist a bit of whimsy tonight. 😉
