Motorway Fields

Down the rusty highway
Weeds split through the cat’s eyes,
Death picnics in a lay-by,
Mysteries paint lines that roll.

I take a closer look,

Dead leaves on the sidewalk,
Witch-black puddles,

Decaying animals sit,
Petrol grey ornaments
With six month old smiles.

I watch rabbits twitching
Near the hedgerows;

My t-shirt is wrapped around a fence,
Clinging to the barbed wire.
