12/5/15 Two salamanders

Two salamanders
dug into the mud on
the freshly rained road.
Tire tracks marking the path
of carelessness.

And isn’t it so?
After all, we call
the fallen ones
casualties.

We, us, far too
casual about the
lives of others.

The carelessness itself
a war on our hearts.

Silent. Deadly.
