Across A Broken Highway

ACROSS A BROKEN HIGHWAY

What’s in a color
of a
different
hue?

Beyond blue.

Once again, failing to acknowledge
the humanity shining through.

The same heartbreaking tale
told so many times before.

This one of a broken soul
dragged
from the back of
a car bumper.

His life’s blood
spent
and
spilled
callously
across a broken highway.

His torn body
discarded
left behind
like road kill.

Yet his demise is quickly forgotten
in a barrage
of human interest stories
until the next dark day
reminds us again
how little has really
changed.
