Roadkill

Roadkill

Caught
in my early-morning headlights,
your rag-doll body
twisted at unnatural angles.

Beautiful face
undamaged,
a grotesque parody
of slumber.

I hope nature
gifted you
a fulfilled life
before
the wheel of the lorry
brushed it aside.

      • I haven’t called one in for a long time. It used to be the county wanted to keep track of this so that warning signs or seasonal hazard alerts were posted. Badgers and foxes follow defined routes based on scent.
