i saw you for the first time tonight
driving home too late too many
bright lights too many closed lanes
too much pride in the concrete
whispering you-will-never-break-me
hazard lights cars slammed into trees
people walking the highway like a plank
hands tied behind their back at the
mercy of happenstance i saw you
in the eyes of the coyotes ripping
the neighbor’s dog to find the meat
i saw you ripping away the flesh
i saw a glint in your eye as you
preyed and pieced apart the domestic
cowering behind the white-picket fence
but you, you never see me.
