Deer, Rigid

(Monroe, MI) Deer carcasses punctuated a recent trip to Detroit, stiff-legged and cold members of the Cervidae family lying on the side of the road like oversized and gruesome stuffed animals.

I resisted the urge to reach down and slide closed the doe's eyelids, as the crusted blood and buzzing flies eroded any sense of empathy I had, while pushing holiday appetizers far, far from my mind.
