Melanie was waiting for the light to change
at 12th and Broadway when a large fellow in
a big truck and 10 gallon hat roared up
right beside her. His truck cab loomed
above her old Buick. His stereo boomed
so loud her windows rattled. His truck was
worth less than one of his monster tires.
Melanie chafes when a big truck parks
next to her at Walmart especially if an SUV
pulls in and parks on the other side.
She’s afraid she’ll back out and hit
an oncoming car like her father did.
Minutes later Melanie arrived at Walmart
and had to park between a truck and SUV.
Visitation will be held at 4 on Monday.
