Lost

PAD Challenge, Prompt #18: lost and found

He got lost
at the corner of
Ninth and Broad,
dazed by the cars
whizzing by, the
screeching tires,
the chaos of one-too-many-cars-packed-into
    one
       little
          street,
disoriented by flashing
    red
       yellow
           green
lights above him,
dizzied by the heavy
fumes, the long legs
rushing past him,
distracted into jay-walking
right across the path of an
oncoming poultry truck.

Poor little chicken.
