This was our date tonight.
Skinny rubber tires treading through white dirt and little rocks.
Pink and purple sun setting on a hazy blue sky.
Golden-lit fireflies dancing in the corn fields.
Cellular tower in the distance blinking white dots like a string of Christmas lights.
Iowa rows of corn line the horizon like Utah mountains.
Farm houses lit up inside at the end of a long day's work.
American flag waving against the backdrop of the Heartland.
Two bikes side-by-side and sometimes single file.
A girl and boy basking in the freedom of their own sets of skinny black wheels.
