Angels In The Field
When she left that morningI told her to drive carefully.She smirked.Drive recklessly then, I barked.
Later she called me
I could hear her moaning
Trying over and over again.
I called her name, but she couldn’t hear me.
All I heard was the same three tones
I felt my belly restrict and go cold
Lost out there somewhere was she
Again she moaned.
I hung up.
It wasn’t me she needed.
Later I found out she had flew.
just minutes after leaving me.
She had landed in a farmer’s field.
Hidden from the road.
The angels that spared her, sent for help.They arrived to find her broken
I had barked at her that morning.
Drive recklessly I said.
I threw away her bloody clothes
On my knees…
I thanked the angels who spared her
That night I walked to the field
Under the winter sky
I felt the brush of wings on my face
