    I enjoyed this story, it is a scene we have seen many times but now we see it through another viewer's eyes and what a difference that makes. The closure to this is absolutely perfect- - - -]
    and the two men

    no longer struggle, they simply stand in their wreckage
    propped in each other's arms

    The suspense, the action ans the final scene have come alive through the graphic details in the poem. I really enjoyed it and appreciate the skill of the poet to recreate a scene from the movie. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    Great poem! What is said at the start of a movie, but 'ACTION! .'

    God bless us all-MJG.
