Roadkill

Roadkill

Teal turquoise house
Open front door
Tweaking twitchy
Woman outside
Yelling for an animal
(Or maybe even a kid)
Pacing in the same
Ten square feet
Across the street

Wearing a black mini skirt
In the sun
With a matching
Black tank top
In her black, mismatched
Color toed socks

Crying out the names

“Toby!

Buddy!

Dougie!

Dotty!

Doggie!

Snuggles!”

As if whatever is lost
Will come back to her

Standing on the front porch
Looking lost
Looking like roadkill
