Tremor
The fine art of full auto body repair works well under the skin with a laser sharp and white slicing cells with calculated precision. The numbers game between business traffic and highway memories resurrected by knife and scalpel slit high in the thigh just along  the main artery where cars icy, hot  and cool fly under a benign radar of risk.  Percentages feed their definitions of  “how are you?" into crunches of unanswered questions where the right lane can do nothing but exit right and the left still waits for an answer around the clock.

dance across sun drenched meadows, circle over two thousand year old venerable trees, cascade down lofty mountains, rotate into anonymity, anticipate a new dawn copyright MICHAEL LEVY
