This work is an excerpt from a book long poem. The poem's emphasis utilizes a collision as metaphor to illustrate a moment lasting as memory. The collision examines time, and place where an event can happen, has happened, and will happen. This occurrence maps this event, which has a lasting effect to memory and the people involved. The difficulty in this poetic composition remains a difficult subject because the inspirational incident used in this poem is the death of my younger brother in a fatal car accident. This work is very important to me and my examination of memorial writing.
