The current banner for this website features a photo of a plastic lawnchair sitting in front of my house. A solitary chair for a solitary existence.
A great big wind came up and blew that chair right out onto the driveway.
I got in my car and put it in reverse and drove backwards onto the chair. It busted into a bunch of pieces. See, that’s what happens. That chair could just as easily have been a living thing, like a small child, or a turtle.
I left the white plastic shards right where they lay. Scattered about the driveway like bleached fossil-bones.
The ribcage of a dinosaur. The vertebra of a seal. The jawbone of an ass.
