Read a quote about the San Francisco earthquake that shook the city on April 18, 1906. The speaker was a policeman. His words sheer poetry.
” (The streets) began to dance and rear and roll in waves like a rough sea in a squall, (then) sank in places and vomited up car tracks and tunnels. These lifted themselves out of the pavement and bent and snapped.”
Just goes to show that there is poetry in each of us.
