The Crash by Brilee Bourgeois (’22)

The crash of my car,

the mirror in the road,

my bumper on the ground.

My first car, I will always remember,

totaled because of me. 


The car sitting in the ditch,

where I was stuck in the car. 

Bump, bump bump. 

Smash, smash, smash.

Opening the door with my feet,

I was finally free. 


I walked down the road 

like a lost dog, 

crying myself a river.

My car,

sitting there

like a fish

out of water,

unable to breathe,

until it was dead.
