Listening In Florida






Possum says that
there are all these
highways now that
she can’t get across
without taking her
life into her paws

but crow says that
he likes the wires
along the highway
where he can sit
and see a mile
in both directions

all the roadkills
as they happen.

  1. Roadkill delights. My dad always called them “poor dead things.” And we would amuse ourselves on family trips by seeing who could identify the most poor dead things before we reached Grandma’s house. Easter visits were prime time for spotting poor dead things on the ground, while Thanksgiving trips yielded the most poor dead thing sightings on moving rooftops.
