A Minor Tragedy on I-5

Driving home today, I passed an overturned truck. Rotten horse parts were falling out of it. My eye was particularly caught by a head that was staring at me, unencumbered by a body.

Then I drove on.

Pretty perfect metaphor for modern life, right? During our daily tasks we get struck with the sheer horror of our actions but then move on, unable to discuss what just happened with anybody except for the anonymous internet.
