When

by nourayasmine   Jan 20, 2021


It takes ten seconds for
a car crash to happen.
Three, if one loses consciousness
instantly.

I don’t know the driver,
or her husband, or the kids
in the back seat.
I stand with the others on
the roadside, watching
the white bags get sealed.

I come home to you
with only one thought
in my head:

I want my last
ten seconds,
or three,
to pass before
yours.
