Attraction - Poem by Verbaas Mij

like a moth to flame;
an attraction to death
we stare at wrecks
and slow to see havoc
we cause traffic packed miles back
to see a car's burnt shell
we seek ruinous affairs
and call pretty people we shouldn't
There's lust, and there's fire
and we only have the sense to head for the light
