A Day in the Life of...

driving, young Iraqi man
with his English exam

behind him sees
two Humvees

a ramp, he slows
so they can go

guns blast
as they pass

he swerves off the road,
falls to the concrete below

(old man waits
fears his son's fate)

Army has no report
of conflict; (do they shoot for sport?)

doctor said, " hit twice in the head"
when he crashed to earth
he was already dead
