Cascade


From faded tarmac steams this end-of-summer heat.
Our headlamps catch spools of white vapour, it moves, circular, in the throat of the road, like a liquid pours, only lighter, slower. Things we should recognize loom unknown from the fog.
Pairs of lights drive by and sound just like cars.

We do live in a Middle Earth sort of place- an elf would make sense here :-)
