On the Way to the Store

I was driving down the road when a hurricane came by and sucked me in.

At first I was upset.

But then…I wasn’t.

So I took my hands off the steering wheel. I turned up the Foghat CD. I answered a text. I had a nap. I woke up and clutter busted my glove compartment. I grabbed the steering wheel and pretended that I was purposefully driving full speed circles in the air.

Then a bird flew into my window.

The bird said, “Do you mind if I join you?”

I shook my head.

We sat in silence for a while.

Then the bird said, “I always wanted to know what it would be like to fly without my wings spread.”
