Driving home from work it had
snowed all night again.
My car looked like a wedding cake
thickly frosted, and white.
I was tired and bleary and the roads were
slick and wet.
I drove home like an old lady in my
frosted blue Corvette.
And then I saw a sight that
made my poor heart lurch,
on an icy median across from
A black and white cat posed
like a loaf of bread,
he looked like he was sleeping but
I knew that he was dead.
I wish I could have saved him, given him
love and warmth and care,
But instead I just drove by him, I just
left him sitting there.
