it became of immediate importance they leave the car.
enduring the red light took most of their patience.
and then they were free.
the gravel parking lot became their haven.
all doors opened. volume: louder. the song floated into overarching oaks. maples. clouds.
auction house two-by-four steps: the trio's stage.
grazing cows across the rural lane cared not for such exuberance.
a moment later the song ended. all doors closed. quiet fell on the lane as the car pulled away.
