You know that out-of-body warm

You know that out-of-body warm feeling you get when you just know something’s about to happen and so you just roll along with it, savouring the moment as it floats on by?

Yeah, that’s how it was for me today on my way home from school when my brakes locked and my car just calmly started to slide into a tree. It was a pleasant moment. I truly enjoyed it as my driving path went one way and i went the other, lurching into a small sapling. The poor baby was never going to amount to much. I think it began its future growth bent sideways. I thought trees should always be sideways. I think I should write a poem about that.

I hugged my tree today.
