Imaginary Postcard

Carhenge, Alliance, NE

Got in late Sunday. The front door was open just like you said. I’d tell you what she left out for us to eat but I don’t want to make you sad. She says you slept on the fold-out for a whole summer because you were scared of a wasp nest outside your window. (Remember? You were pretty little.) How you did that so long, I sure don’t know. I toss and turn like a fever, and last night had a dream that a severed fist was lodged in my side. Went to Bible study tonight to be on the safe side. She looks okay, but you were right about her cough. She didn’t drive out to see the cars with us yesterday. We sat inside the circle a good hour ’til a rainstorm reared up. Davey said the place made him sorrowful, like it’s a placeholder for something lost. I think that’s why I like it so much. If you can wire another 50, I'll stock her freezer before we hit the road.
