The Breathtakingly Beautiful Bon Jovi Slippery When Wet VHS Majestic Snow Adventure!!!

This Bon Jovi Slippery When Wet VHS tape decided to venture out into a snow-blanketed world one cold, sleepy winter morning.



It was amazed at the majestic beauty it found outside.  It was as if the elements had patiently awaited the emergence of this Bon Jovi VHS tape since 1986.



And so, mesmerized by the majesty of the snowy day, it plunged into a brave new experience of the world.





From atop this old stone foundation, the VHS tape felt as if it had finally climbed over the wall and escaped into a glorious new life.




Further into the snowy tundra it proceeded, entranced and enchanted by the vast, white landscape.



Luckily, it did not go for a swim.





But it did spend a few minutes on this guardrail, taking in hurriedly passing vehicles.



It climbed a large rock and gazed out at some enormous robotic things that it could not understand.






The tape felt most at home among the hibernating trees.







Eventually, exhausted by its epic journey, the Bon Jovi Slippery When Wet VHS tape took a breather on a nearby bench.




Finally, it decided to shoot some hoops before heading back indoors.

Assailed, still

A frozen veil descended
while we slept,
coating groaning trees
in cryogenic stillness.


















I went into the world
amidst the slumber forced
on nature by
its own design

and discovered
time
settling on everything







Assailed on 11/23/06



in silence,
but for the sound
of things
slowing down.

The apprehensive space





They decided after
awhile
that the time
had come to go.

The birds of Oak Ridge Persist






The birds stubbornly
persisted in the
final throes of fall.
