No children on the playground.

I was attracted by the Christmas-like twinkling of police car lights. No sirens, just an array of orange and red lights jumping across the roofs of police cars. Three police cars, and one tow truck. There were no children in the playground on this cold February afternoon. Just a cheap car pushed against a blue plastic slide. No ambulences- not yet. The K-car was being removed from the playground. The driver was being removed from the scene.
On the radio I listened to Jerry Lee Lewis playing 1950s “jump” music... yes it was called jump music.

“Come along a baby a whole lot of shakin going on, Who's barn , what barn?"
