Road Burn

Tonight as I was leaving the grocery store parking lot, I spotted a penny out my side car window. I had just backed out of the parking space and a truck was behind me, but that didn't stop my pursuit of the penny. No!

I braked, opened my car door, put the car in park, and leaned out to get the penny. The penny was farther away than I thought and I got road burn on the hand I reached with. It's a memory already. Gone.

So here's the penny. It's seen better days, for sure. Very beat up. Like Abe got in a fight and lost.
