FULL of LIFE.
ChasedAwayByThe neighborhood dog.
A squirrel died on my front lawn.
I saw it fall,
As warm and round as an overripe peach.
I heard it land, like an olive dropped on hard wood,
splayed in a spot where passers-by
looked away on purpose.
brushed their legs against each other.
I canceled a dinner party because of the smell:
a low noisome hum
thick as sulphur on the head of a match just burnt,
sour as eggs.
My stomach curled low into my hips
when I searched the air outside my window,
Swollen flies met in congress,
they rubbed their legs together,
trying to start a fire.
animal, bird, death, nature,
Stiff, silent on the asphalt
confusion, death, introspection, life, mother, son,
“ Why did you have to do that?”
“Run over that [dead] squirrel?”
“Because I’m heartless”
