palisades parkway

i cry in the car
because i have nowhere else
to do it.

i only saw it for a second.

the deer had lifted her head,
eyes widepanicked
as she tried to stand
with broken legs bent beneath
and hips twisted backwards.

she must’ve been hemorrhaging inside.
blood pooling and swirling around
a broken spine and femurs and ribs.

blunt force trauma’s a bitch.
she probably died right there
on the side of the parkway.

and i drove right past.
i drove right past
and so

i scream in the car
because i have nowhere else
to do it.

i only saw her for a second.

Momma told me not to smoke weed
Told me to stay clean
Like she’s never seen
How clean weed can make me be
Set me fucking free
