Two blackbirds, apparently on a nighttime stroll, stop to ponder a handbill lighted by a street light. The visual image of blocks of ice pictured on the handbill are melting and dripping down the cement wall onto the sidewalk forming a puddle. Even while standing in the puddle of water, it’s impossible to believe that a picture of ice can melt. The improbability of such circumstances defies what we know but correlates to our lack of concern with conditions that we have no intimate connection—glaciers worldwide are melting but since we can’t see it as it happens, we deny attributing the consequences to the cause!
