I keep listening for a Leaf.
A noisy Jeep crawls the parking lot, a megaphone on its tailpipe.
We are Americans. It's our God-given right to annoy the crap out of the people around us. A Dodge truck rattles the windows. I know it's our right, but wouldn't be nice if it weren't our choice? if we instead chose to offer our neighbors a little peace, if we chose not to scream "Look at me!" every time we ran an errand?
A Mustang howls by.
Imagine a rustle of Leaves driving by.
Imagine a little more peace.
May it not be hard to imagine.
