1. 1. Morning
Underwood commutes past a deer dead
in the median. It still has the shape of a deer,
and he still has the shape of Underwood.
What are your goals for this quarter?
Eat well, avoid coyotes, maybe get laid,
and what about you, Buck?
Underwood laughs as the light turns green,
and the river of traffic surges from the floodgate.
2. 2. Afternoon
The deer still on the grass
Underwood still in his car,
buzzards hop about in consultation
sleek and reeking in black suits and wingtips,
Synergrizing the carcass.
