turñ

 

 

Any right hand turn
left to wade the haze
of white noise life-instructing
radio waves,
are, by all defaults, correctly placed
in the middle of the lane

to graze. But bright steel fate cars,
and crazy speeding
destiny carriers often collide–far
too terrifying an area,
and too perilous
for counter-phobic deer, dreaming

of yipping like mini terriers and
convinced they’re watch-cows helping scare us
off. Fate is 8 lanes wide
with a twist,
radiating asphalt sun—
and has no barriers; no barrel of fun

jumping chicken wire fences,
taking dumb careless chances
doing double-yellow
road kill dances, pale,
and becoming one with the road
in a head-on grazing, a reactionary sunburst.

But, before I try
and make sense of all that,
I think I’ll just turn right first.

  1. This struck ( ha ha struck) me as humorous because before the 2009 station fire (you may or may not have heard of it) in Calif we lived in the Angeles national forest and I hit a deer on the way to work, pitch black out, it was an experience to be sure.
    “Fate is 8 lanes wide” fantastic line!

    • Being from Orange county I know the Angeles national forest well. And I remember that fire. It closed access to crystal lake, and a decent stretch of fishing, the San Gabriel River. Chaotic for men and animals.

      ty as always
