The South Hills

October 1, 2008
We were driving
In silence
I was waiting for
Something to happen,
The kids,

Grandma and Brad
Follow behind
As the silence remains
As if,
We are motionless

There was a scream
Now all I hear
Is the screaming
The crying next to

The car stops,
But the crying continues
I shake with fear
And try to comfort
The little one

I look back
And see
The big,
Brown doe
That caused the
Fearful accident

She runs up into
The hills almost in
My legs
Still trembling
I get out
And notice

A broken headlight

Is all

We are once again,
In silence
