Initially emerging from house lined streets.

Surrounded by pine and/or maple trees,

You’re never really sure which,

You think you really ought to learn the trees like a native

Maybe if you cared more about that, you’d care less about…so many things

You allow the car to drag its wheels through dust and spin smoothly on the concrete

Effortlessly turn the wheel and propel your vehicle along the road,

Unfamiliar friendly faces catch your eye as you go,

They push strollers, feet bike pedaling, furry paws tugging with great effort to escape nylon collars around necks.

You advance and find suburban treasures to protect,

No cows for you to milk, you only need,

Trade denari and hours lived for consumption and repeat.
