“emblazoned snapshot” by Meg Tuite
Meg Tuite lives in Santa Fe and rides a Honda XL 100 motorcycle on the back roads. She still can’t remember to hit the break instead of downshift, so her body mass has made an imprint in the red dust on many occasions. Tarantulas, stink bugs, rattlers, and bull snakes scuttle or slide over these canyons and play dead whenever they see the darkening shadow of her wobbly wheels or other rubber insomniacs.

I love the phrase “…old Chevy truck / bed of my mind”. Nice!
