School Bus

“Is it just me, or is this school bus alive? I love the fierce squint of the windshield wipers, the storm clouds reflected on the windows, the fat tires poised to roll right over the American Barricade. And really, how perfect is that?

Why is a school bus parked at the Days Inn? Where are the children? I imagine a long line of toddlers waiting to board, their frazzled teacher counting heads, checking names on the classroom roster, making sure no child is left behind.”
