Somewhere to Somewhere

      Driving from somewhere to somewhere
I ran over cardinal;
birds are crafty, usually get out of the way
but this one posed in the road
hardly moved as I approached,
paralyzed by its presents(sic) 
i never slowed.
Thought it would fly away
like a thousand had done before
but it didn't.
I only slowed after the crash,
in the rear view mirror
I could see it tumbling
like a blood drop 
rolling down the black mask of
a gray-gray day.

    oh, so sad, yesterday I almost hit a duck! a female. she was flying across the street right about the height of my radiator. I braked just in enough time for her to pass, but we are talking inches....hugs, catie :)
