FATAL WIRE

When last, Therese
in Cavalese
went downhill skiing
- enjoying being
in sunny weather
with friends together,
in came a plane
- it sounds insane,
just cut a wire,
sent an entire
cabin lift
into a swift
and deadly fall,
much like a ball.
And then, the crew
away just flew,
while down below,
deep in the snow,
for twenty ‘wired’
all life expired!

I wrote FATAL WIRE in March 1998
as a reaction to this news wire:
“A U.S. marine investigation board blamed the four-man crew
of a jet for the deaths of 20 people aboard a ski gondola in
northern Italy. The board said the crew was breaking the rules
on how fast and low it could fly when the jet severed ski-lift
cables and sent the gondola plunging to the ground. The crew’s
commanding officer has said he would convene the military
equivalent of a criminal grand jury.”
