Dark Pavement

Dark Pavement

Dark pavement
Dry from July heat
Winding away under heated rubber
Green reflection through glass

Flash of red happens fast
Time slows to a crawl
Darkness surrounds the crash
Lightning sizzles in the heat

Pain screams in the dirty air
Breath stops and starts
Sirens blare under lightning’s stare
Eyes survey the mesh of blue and red

Three bodies release from the grip
All stumble to the brink
Grateful to the sky
Breath starts again in the dark
