I Got a Boo-Boo From a Car Crash

Car crash!

My head lies next to the roots

of a poor baby sapling

only a few years old.

My stomach forced between the car,

the road,

too long, too far,

two traveled.

My heart locked in the trunk

confined to the claustrophobia.

My eyes with God

watch the blood spill out,

the oxygen rises from

heaven to hell.

My body lies under him,

his blood flow

a river of rot

from head to toe

which lies on the brake.

Pieces lost,

forgotten,

never to be found

again.
