i work the late shift at the ice cream shop and i don’t leave until it’s dark, almost ten o'clock, but when i do i get on my bike and put in my earphones and ride through the mystery of suburban night, follow hazy streetlights, avoid cracks in the sidewalk, and everything is a little mystical when the sun has gone down and the lawns are all the same in rows upon rows, and you can’t be sure if the fuzzy shape in front of you is a person or a tree, but you swerve anyway, and keep on going, the smooth pavement under your tires whispering away. and i ride and ride.

She was nearly twenty, with dark hair, darker eyes, and
a hint of something deeper within. There was a freshness
about her that the surrounding harsh landscape had failed to
eliminate. Anyone glancing at her would have thought her
soft: a serious error of judgment.
