In memory of a little boy killed in a car accident

"There are two angels around your shoulder." 

She said. 

"I can see them now." 

She paused.Waiting. For what? 

Applause? Exclamations of wonder? 

Don't give me your angel crap. 

 

 

The little boy runs across the road, 

The promise of the park to come. 

The screech of tyres, 

The thud of  metal. 

Don't give me your angel crap.
