Geographies: Kinshasa by Mark Young

Riding a beer truck
wasn’t comfortable but
the experience was quite
exhilarating, in much
the same way that the
dangerous combination
of scarves & convertibles
resonates with a specific

audience. She had rented
a red Mustang to use
over the summer, hoping
it would put icing on to
the vacation cake. The
moon was almost full.
