February 22nd Prompt

Describe three very different places in a city.

A slight descent into sand surrounded by a concrete barrier. Children laughing and staying away from the iron slides due to the heat. Moms chatting leisurely over coffee, glad to be out of the house. Sprinklers making their clockwork rotations on the dewy green grass. Cars driving by.

A holy place. The safest place to be in a tornado. A giant cross on the side. An expansion to a dirt parking lot.

Youths skating, swearing, smoking, searching. Good hearts. Lost souls. Numbing the pain. Keeping that one dopamine neurotransmitter firing, desperately.
