what I saw today

  • a few dozen vehicles either off the road, facing the wrong way, or on the road, same calamitous circumstances, owing to the slippery slope of snow
  • whitened and crystalline branches, limbs, tree trunks, and mini-palisades
  • rain or snow or ice against the windshield
  • windshield wipers
  • the tired yet wise and kind eyes of the 98-year-old woman who gave birth to me
  • my hometown, remarkably recognizable
  • toll booths
  • lines of people at the rest stop, also called text stop
  • road signs
  • heavily mascaraed and tired-beyond-years eyes of a gas station sales clerk
  • a McDonald's crispy chicken sandwich
  • a holiday bouquet of not-very-fresh flowers
  • a coffee-to-go, from Wendy's
  • apostrophes
  • the digital readout of mileage on my car's dashboard surpassing 100000

this is like a slower, more reflective version of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". PK, you rule like no one else I know. Keep it up
