New Women’s Chiffon Tops. They’re just so chiffon-y.

The Horror of Taking Another Life: Part I

August 16, 2009
I had was halfway down my street: home
Literally, I could have thrown a rock the 250 into my bedroom window
Then, What the fuck was that
The impact was tremendous

Jumping out of the car, three things immediately catch my eye
A broken. my headlight watch and a ten dollar bill, clearly having been rolled around a handle bar
The horror begins as I look behind me
A woman sprawled in the road and her bicycle
This cannot be good

I grab my phone and call 911
I need an ambulance on Gordon Rd., off 29 By-Pass
I’ve hit a bicyclist; it’s not good
She’s certainly got broken ribs and is aspirating

Calm down, sir
Fuck calming down
Grab hold of her hand, and try to get a response
I’m doing….Oh God, she’s dead
What makes you think she’s dead
Has her respiration stopped
No, her pupils are blown
I’m no CSI junky
I have clinical training in Medical Ethics
She’s brain dead

Sir, try too calm down, and remain on the line until help arrives
Are there other injuries
She compound fractures to her arm and both legs, her jaw is broken
Where the fuck are the EMT
Sir, they are on the way

While the other EMS team was trying to get me to receive help for cuts on my hands and feet from the glass
I watched the other team
They bagged her
On the way to the ambulance, they stopped depressing the bag
Teresa Ann Williams was dead
And, I was partly to blame
She haunts both my waking and dreaming hours
