The pain of loss

Small and black, flying through the air
Yelping, shock and pain
Red red blood, spraying everywhere
Growling at one, cuddling the other in comfort, shocked!
Pressing to stop the bleeding
Phone call..
Drive, heart pounding, to the vet
Needles, tubes, gas, scissors and more needles and Super Glue!!
Drowsy, tongue lolling
Carry back to the car
Drive home, loud snoring filling the car
Back inside, safe in bed
Finding small black piece
Into the rubbish
Sad, sorry, all of us
