The Pony Express

"oh, i miss the west!" she wrote her friend.

"hey, the west misses you, too, lady k," he replied.
"but i'll tell you what. i'll bring yellowstone to you!
i mean, i'm confident that my car, lilly, can handle
at least one bear in the front seat and
i'm sure i can squeeze in some mountain goats in the back."

he paused. "hey, do you think my roof rack would hold a moose?"

and the thought made her giggle to imagine
his tiny honda coupe transporting a menagerie of
animals across the country just to make her feel better,
although she was sure they'd make quite a scene at roadside rests.
