4 Way

4 Ways

4 Way Stop sign on Randolph 
The cars collided – one spun the other sped off
I wrote down part of the license plate
“187 Dark Blue Escalade.”
Gave it to the officer
Turned and saw the Jaws of Life taking the hood off of her
She couldn’t have been more than 10
Her knees pinned, 
the EMTs tried and tried but couldn’t get in. 
I closed my eyes and could see my niece’s life end 
Or maybe it could’ve been one of her friends. 
Her father came out paralyzed 
but alive 
His daughter didn’t 
He lost her in less than a minute.
Lost in less than a minute 

Down a couple of blocks 
187 Dark blue Escalade was caught
He could’ve been charged with possession
Instead she was charged another DWI and now 3 counts of vehicular homicide.
