We counted roadkill on the Oklahoma roads. An armadillo lay belly-up, with only the curve of its shell terra-bound.
As we passed the armadillo a bald eagle circled ahead, making slow moons above the armored animal the Aztecs call turtle rabbit.
I saw the eagle in the rear-view mirror drawing down upon its prey.
