Fruitburst II

I stood on a snail and it squashed
mashed
smashed
under my toes as I ran
barefoot
for the gate,
swinging closed,
straining to throw myself through before
the moment of contact,
the iron and the brick,
beneath my feet the tarmac
wet and slick
in the downpour
and the fragments of the copper shell
skittered away across the black
and as I looked back
the split second ended
I was stuck
as the lock struck the latch
the window was closed
and I was still on your side of it
