I Am So Sorry

I am so sorry

that it ended this way.

That I hit you

as I plowed my way down the blacktop road

to the glare of the bar after a long day’s work.

I am sorry that you never had a chance.

That we never met

before my fender met your confused, blinded stare.

I am sorry that you’re still there now,

lying flattened and smushed

under many crooked black streaks.

Out in the sun and the rain.

I’m sorry I was so tired

and the night was so dark

and I was so thirsty for what I’d earned.

Sorry you didn’t see me.

Sorry I didn’t see you.

Sorry that I’m sorry,

if that’s at all helpful to you.
