Eyeballs

“OOOOH goodness, can we stop?” I implored the driver.

We had been at the beach for the day and driving back home, but we passed a 1959 Chevrolet Apache Fleetside, sitting as decoration at an antique store that was closed for the day. I spent an hour and a half drenching the rusty truck in shutter clicks.

It was wonderful.

About to Roll Over

There’s nothing like a good junkyard. To peek into the dented automobile’s driver’s side window and assume what happened in THIS vehicle. You wonder if anyone was hurt. Sometimes you KNOW someone had a ride in the ambulance, and you hope a little hope that they made it. And then, you move on to the next vehicle and click the shutter a few more times, and you go about your day.

Octopus

The hammer head made contact with the windshield at such a force that deeper cracks crawled down the glass cliff. She had had enough. She had put up with his cheating one last time and her anger took over. She grabbed the nearest blunt object and attacked his prized possession.

A 1935 DeSoto Airflow Coupe.

He’d acquired the prized car body from his great uncle, who’d loved him more, for some reason. He had poured every dime and penny into it and it was almost finished. He’d replaced the windshield just a week ago, she wasn’t even sure if the sealant had dried.

Oh, the sealant. Oh the months of research and testing to get the correct sealant.

Oh the arguments.
Oh the money wasted.
Oh the cheating.

She raised the hammer again.

Dead Leaves

The leaves crunched underneath our feet.

“It’s over here, I’m starting to remember.” He was stomping ahead in excitement, but the sun was barely breaking through the tree cover so I couldn’t walk as quickly.

“Wait, I feel like I might trip! Don’t get too far away, please.” But he never listened to me anyway, I don’t know why I even tried anymore.

He was gone. I’d looked down to adjust my shoe and popped my head up and he wasn’t there. What. The. Hell.

“Steve! STEVE!”

A few birds flew up and startled me as I kept walking straight ahead. I hated when he did this to me.

I kept trudging along, we were losing light. I yelled his name again. I heard movement a little ways ahead of me so I walked toward it. And then I realized it sounded much larger than a human being.

And then I heard a motor, and a siren. And then ALL the birds flew up from the ground.

And there was Steve driving an old fire engine.

“See! Told you it was back here somewhere…”

oink

“I bet we could write anything on these cars and they wouldn’t notice…”

Dusk was approaching, and the job was almost done. They’d received the entire lot of junk cars from a junkyard that had been bought to empty and use the land for condos.

Condos. Where, once, the beauty of a junk lot had been, and people are taking the good spots and making them livable. But what they don’t seem to notice, is they’re removing the places to store these rust buckets once their cushy lives afforded them a new vehicle.

“Eh. These people are pigs….” He mumbled.

So I scrawled the letters O, I, N, and K.
