The train sped through the countryside, taking curves at a pace that Cynthia found inappropriate. “Can I get a fucking break?” she thought.
“Ah, the relentlessness of existence,” replied the endless fields of timothy grass.

“I was just—I’m getting motion-sick.”
“From the left turns your life has taken—“
“No. From the train.”
“It’s never just about the train, Cynthia.”
“What do you know? You’re a fucking field,” she snapped.
The endless fields wept quietly, having never before been spoken to in that manner. Cynthia rolled her eyes.
