Welcome

to the public museum

of road kill,

where you can study

 

the sciences of animal

anatomy by bike;

or, come to understand

 

the taste of curdled acid

as the dead do—just before

they pass:

 

or, to see time

as it sees us,

to know what lies beyond

 

the flies—

yet

most don’t

 

know or care

—carried in automobiles,

and I don’t care to blame them

 

for forgetting their history

and staying off

the streets—

 

for forgetting—

what their bodies are

made from;

 

and, what they’ll think

when they too taste

acid on their tongue
