Suddenly A stray Dog...

Suddenly a stray dog
across the busy and blind traffic 

darts
in a vain try to get to the shore beyond.


The pliable flesh and bones
with a howl of fear and pain
against the power and speed of steel 

surrenders
flat in the middle of the road.


Up toward the sky fly a few drops of blood.
Down on the road settles the body with a twitch.
In the split of a second life meets death
as his cry greets silence.


Drunk with speed the motors move on.


What was it from the other shore of the road
that drove the dog into that deadly leap?
The sight of a mate or a piece of meat?

Whatever it was it no more matters.
