Pigeoned out

It seemed asleep
on the cold
snow rutted
road
Peaceful.
Eyes closed.

I stopped and came back
for it.

Tried to pick it up
by a feather
but it came away

I grasped it
with my glove
feathers warm
but it was stuck
yanked it off
revealing
it had been struck

likely a car
on this road
not long before

blood congealing
some frozen to the rut

Made my deposit
into a snow bank
a better funeral
than
staying to be
tired and feathered
by the next

uncaring
car
stuck in the
same rut.
