2. Voodoo dolls and red toy cars



April 15, 2011


      This day cannot be happening . I had arrived at the hospital twenty minutes after the accident, legs quivering violently, breath short and choked. I had missed the ambulance. I had stared at her body, nonresponisive, sprawled on the gravel like a voodoo doll except shards of glass stuck inside her instead of shiny needles. I too was still, watching the men load up my mother, shaking their heads then driving off. I was a statue. My lips were pursed, my eyes scarlet. I wasn't crying.

       Only a few minutes later, I had found the strength to stand up. The crowd had finaly cleared, chatting away at each other like excited children. Gathering a deep breath, I stared to run the five miles to the hospital. When I got there I heard the news.

       My brother was there, crying his eyes out, clutching the red toy car in his right hand. It had a chip in its side. One of its handles was torn off. Until this momement, I had not though that much about that toy Billy loved with his life. With its black windows and a lightningbolt on its side, it looked exactly like the car that killed my mother.
