These Things

In by Lucía on August 24, 2010 at 10:36 am

Head into the mountains in a groovy stick shift that takes the dirt road oh-so-well, and at the house with stairs made from dirt and old tires, leave the car and begin to hike.  Past the horses, the topless teepee, American flags, and barbed wire fence.  “No trespassing.”  Arrive at the hot springs, remove all clothes, and soak.  Hours later, return to the faithful steed …without keys.  Retrace the hike, now accompanied by the sounds of lightning and the wetness of light rain.  Return, and find the keys on top of the vehicle.  Smile.  Know that these things do happen.
