It's the same every day at the drive-through coffee stand. Today she leans over the jar with a sign, "TIPPING IS NOT A CITY IN CHINA."
Exposing more cleavage than usual, she asks how my day is going.
I toss in a couple of dollars and respond, ”actually I was bitten by a tarantula…..” She smiles and shouts , ”awesome.”

last day of summer
the illusion
of time
