When we read do we see words, or images? I believe it depends on the level of description and connecting tissue. Poetry is often the best vehicle for written imagery, however, well crafted prose has the same ability.
Slowly streaming towards LA
Encapsulated in a steel corpuscle
Breathing conditioned air
Outside, thousands of tires hum a tune with no meaning
In an artery of whatever LA is
Through brown air and disorder
Pushed along by unfulfilled dreams
To a place where belief in the impossible
Lends hope to the improbable.
What is your opinion? Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
