My Penance

Small brown flash,

left periphery,

then:

small thud,

against the hood,

and 

gone.

 

Then,

the image:

tucked wings,

destination

within reach,

almost there,

almost there.

 

But then,

big silver flash,

right periphery,

from around the bend,

too close to dodge,

almost there,

almost there.

 

Thud.

Gone.

 

Small brown bird,

on its way,

to somewhere important.

 

Big silver car.

Me.

Tears,

and these words,

my penance.

 

Gone.
