    On Forgetting the Bleach (this is a poem)

    Every day I drive down Lakeland

    And my tires pass over what can only

    Be described as a large splatter of blood

    No, not a splatter, bigger than a splatter

    A Spill of blood

    Like from an overturned tanker

    A splatter-spill of blood

    A deer? I wonder,

    For is it not a lot of blood?

    Or a human

    Or a human who hit a deer

    Someone did not survive

    Someone is just a stain, a spill splatter stain

    It has been there for weeks

    And every day I think

    I should pour bleach out the window

    Let the entirety of lifelessness pass on

    How many days would that take?

    How many bottles of bleach?

    But I forget.

    Before the next traffic light, I forget.

    It is just red paint on black asphalt

    Until tomorrow, when I will wonder

    Who has left a piece behind

    –Amy
