Blinded

by Khristy Knudtson

Driving along the highway at sunset.

Flying on frontage roads,
sipping iced coffee,
and carbonated water,
thrift-store finds
stuffed in the hatchback.

Two 30-somethings
ignored their latest
existential crises
for a sunset, a summer high,
singing Third Eye Blind and The Cardigans.
