They’ve had a year of cancer, and now they have this whole long day before them, driving the long dipping road— the way it curves into tree shadows, and something just ahead, a yellow re-cycling bin, lying on its side, waiting in the middle of the road, with its wide mouth open. They see what lies ahead, without question; yet, they drive straight into it.
