Car

Posted on: December 25, 2013

Startling: to see my car on the street as I come around a corner, in a shape that is mine but a shade that is not mine. This one bright shiny red like an overgrown ladybug missing its spots; that one brilliant blue as a piece of candy you could pluck up and pop in your mouth.

They are the same, but different too. This one with a gash in its bumper, stark against the pale green paint; that one with its seats pulled back in a configuration I would never use. It is my car, transformed.

And then, occasionally: the same as mine. Enough to make me wonder exactly where I parked. Block after block, I am surrounded by cars that are mine and not-mine.
