They walked along the freeway of thick air

traveling from one place to another

and they played their harmonicas

and left their wigs of red, beautiful long hair

and their fingernails, where gold or other

particles would hide until they were dropped

off somewhere else.

The rock looked up to see the bridge of ice

was still in the sky.
