I am used
to being stepped
each and everday.
But today
bounded in a surprise
with the sound
of crunching
No rubber soles
of shoes
could ever be
this heavily hard.
And unlike the feet
this metal didnt
step and go.
Instead, resting upon me
sat a car
crashed onto me, concrete,
on Roselle Street.

The author's comments:
this was written from a new article about a car crash. the car crashed onto someones front steps, so i wrote this from the perspective of the steps.
