muffle my brain

I picked up this car muffler yesterday. It had been lying in the median across near the old McKinney Dairy Queen for a couple of weeks. I spotted it one day in my rearview mirror and almost couldn't believe my eyes. I had just been telling a friend about an art installation I saw once in which someone aligned several hundred of these things in a grid on a grassy quad. I've never forgotten what a great piece it was. I walked amongst those heaps of metal, all different, in wonder at the imagination that created the display.

I don't know what I'm going to do with this but I'm sure I'll eventually think of something. In the meantime I'll let it Rust In Peace.
