Traveling down the interstate, heading to Oklahoma, I find beautiful destruction. Just passing through an industrial area, a decorative cloud rises from a factory. The shade shrouded, dirt-tinted, fluff sneaking across the sky, starkly contrasted against the sunburned clouds is enchanting. How pretty it is, photo-locked memory in my mind. My camera out of reach and the miles blurring past, leave me to contemplate the fact that beauty is burned out of destruction, filtering chemicals into my lungs, cutting into the eyes that admire it. And I realize just how beautiful destruction can be.
