A Night Out

Actually, it was a nice night, and Mrs. G went out for a walk. Suddenly, she watched herself riding on a high wheel out of town nightly sounds the fields rolled towards her stars sparkling.

Soon, the trail led along a rising slope. Soon, a gentleman, maybe her husband, clinging to her back. Soon, Mrs. G. was breathing hard on the sandy path. Sooooon, she lurched in a tight curve and crassshed. Man, bike tumbling. Tumbling down, down in the dark. Between two whissssspering treeeeeeeees on the path in the shadows 's dark. Mrs. G got up. She brussshed the dusttt from her clothes. In the dark humming stars from afar stretching the night…out.
