Somewhere in Brooklyn are these open windows and this one bend of fuschia petals. I wonder if the petals have dropped now that I am back home.
And somewhere in Ohio are the two cowboys who sat next to me on last week’s plane taking us from Montana to our Minneapolis connection. From there, they were headed out to see Rick’s barn. Middleseat-Wranglerjean-Man asked Windowseat-Levijean-Man how big did he suppose the airport was in South Bend. Windowman was surprised. After a bit he cleared his throat and said, I thought you’d want to know how big Rick’s barn is. That’s the only thing I know.
I confess to wanting to know how big Rick’s barn is. Now I’ll never know.
And flying back from Brooklyn via Charlotte to Denver the couple behind me fought. Both had aisle seats. Apparently she couldn’t trust him with the simple issue of renting a car once they landed. Apparently ever since he bought the wrong brand of cheese at the market last Christmas, she’s not let him make a decision. What’s it going to take, he asked in the sleepy-dark cabin of our plane, to prove I’m a worthy man?
This is something else I’ll never know.
