Saturday Night and I ain't Got Nobody!

Imagine me.
In my car.
In the dead of night.
On a lonely dirt road.
With all the lights off.
A corn field on one side.
A bean field on the other.

I am parked in the wilderness.
In the dark.
But I am NOT afraid.

No, I am waiting for the night-time sensation. I'm told there's to be an aurora tonight, and by golly, I want to be ready to see it.

Then the clouds rolled in, and obliterated the sky of stars. I drove home, sadly. Unfulfilled. Undressed at midnight and climbed into bed. Then the rain came.

And I went to sleep.
