I saw a moose
Out there in the night
Through the windshield as we drove
In the mountains
In the winter.

A smudge of shadow in the black darkness
A lack of light in the shadowy road ahead
We might have hit it out there
In the middle of nowhere
The headlights reflected the show
On her back as she moved
Shimmering so
We saw her in time.

Good thing
Lexus vs moose
Moose usually wins.
