roadkill – responding to Sarah St Vincent Welch’s ‘the recent burials’



responding to Sarah’s ‘the recent burials’


wallaby gone when we came back with rifle

so push off the tar

and days watch by, summer fast

yd hardly see the crows, or who were they (?)

driving by each day


dog of my childhood

in a backyard gone

and the time capsules (late sixties) must be there still too

damp mouldy remains of still live and breathe

important things forgotten now

but smell bad

and straight to the bin


sometimes you’d think the whole planet bones

sunk further toward the molten core

but some were smoke before


no one buried the dinosaurs

that was a sad sad day
