cars…

this old Dodge was parked out in the alley with its lights on…middle of the night…all you could see was an outline of a man behind the wheel…lookin’ at some kinda map or big piece of paper…kept turnin’ it every which way…seein’ if there was some angle he was missin’…if there was another way to approach the road ahead…guess that’s what he was doin’…can’t say for sure…

then this person…a head popped up from behind the seat…think it was a woman…tossed her hair ’round…shook her head to both sides…looked like she was tellin’ him somethin’…maybe ’bout which way to the highway…or the best back road to take…he was gettin’ an earful…

and fireworks were bein’ set off from down the street…kids out on a Friday night firin’ off bottle rockets…cherry bombs…cracks and pops like gun fire…hard to tell the difference…loudness followed by dead silence…no street lights…nothin’…just headlights from that old Dodge…

looked up and the car was movin’ down the alley and out into the street…guess they’d decided where they were goin’…out East or maybe down South where it’s warm in winter…perhaps they were just lookin’ for a Wal-Mart…some place to park the car for the night that was safe…get some sleep…start their journey tomorrow…

another car pulled into the alley…an old Chevy with a muffler dragin’…turned off the motor…nobody got out…
