to the lovely Triple M Bookclub in all its many eccentricities.

I wake to a dull roar that quickly becomes deafening. The sound rattles the windows in my bedroom
and sends my father into a raging fury about
those darn criminals
which I can only assume refers to
the motorcycle gangs that have been rolling into town lately for the antique bike show. My father does
this every year, says these things every year.
I should really move out.
“Amy,” my mother says, opening my door the same way she has every day since I started
kindergarten. “Time to get up. We're meeting your aunt over at the church to plan the potluck on
Saturday.” I smile and nod, hold my tongue and refuse to tell her that a potluck plans itself. People

and turn away. It's not going to happen, not for me. Girls like me don't wrap their arms around men in
leather, straddle massive hunks of metal that my mom refers to solely as
death traps,

we've never been. Girls like me put on their yellow camisoles, their white sweaters and their below
the knee skirts. We grab our purses, slather on some clear lip gloss and sit in the passenger seat while
our mother talks about the nice boy who just moved to town with his parents.
