The ball bounces off the curb and keeps on rolling down. It passes the gate, turns left by the welcoming sign: one letter, another…, exclamation point, star. It is on the main street now, crossing the double yellow line. The first car slows down, a kid’s face pressed against the rear window. The second car stops. The passenger door opens, a man jumps out, picks up the ball from the gutter, waves at the tire-screeching truck behind and hops back in.
