The screeching of tires. I am a good driver Attentive, smart, careful The first snap of metal from the door. I was going to get the sunday groceries My mom is sick The pressure of the impending vehicle. I have to study for my physics test later I want to graduate with honors next month The jolts from my skidding car. My best friend is coming to study She makes the best cookies The feeling of glass. Everywhere. I hope my mom is okay She gets worse by the day The heat from the early summer pavement. We’re all we have But we are happy The blue sky… why is it red? I had the right of way I looked before I accelerated What is that pain? There are people screaming Red and blue lights Where is my mom? She is expecting the chicken We always have chicken on sunday Where am I going? There is no more red Just light Why was he on his phone? It has been a week My body is in a wooden box Couldn’t he see the stop sign? It was right there I saw it Why was he going so fast? The velocity It sent my body flying What was so important? More important than my life More important that his innocence Why is he still there? He never did get to the store But he will have another opportunity Who will tell my mother I love her? I hope she got the sunday chicken She knew I was a good driver
