Montana. Yellowstone Park, The Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, Corn Palace, the last time I was there—I was about 11 years old.
I’m on a road trip and the past is patient.
Besides the rotten-egg smell of the geysers, the chiseled heads and the buffalo— I remember the Corn Palace built each year out of corn— and the ants walking across our table towards the honey jar!
What kids remember.
And what they don’t…
Sipping the sun.
