And We Were Hit On the Left Side

And We Were Hit On the Left Side

My head fractures the glass at impact
Screeching tires was all I heard before
Shards of glass fill the car like
The glitter in a snow globe settling

Another impact from the right
Starts us bending towards it
Our arm reaching out to it
As if wanting to touch it
To understand why

The glitter now shines deep red
Floating before my eyes
Flipping and turning and sparkling

Out of focus
The sky is replaced with grey
Then sky then grey then blue
Then green lush grass beneath me
