POEM: ‘Automobile’

Crumpled carburettor caresses the curves
Horn rings out a slow tuneless death knell.
Door cuts into thigh
Blood coats metal.
A leg stretches backwards
Unspeakable angle
Covered in purple and crimson remembrance.
Head lolls like a twisted Newton’s Cradle
Drowned in the ocean of a comatose curse.
Body through the windshield
Sliced like so much cheap ham
Bizarre meat sculpture
Glass reflects in eyes, blind, gone.
