Horseshoes

The speedy buggy jumped the bump and tossed the driver toward a telephone pole like a horseshoe. He hadn’t yet sprouted wings (as most humans don’t) but flailed his arms in an attempt to stay airborne. When he collided with the wood, he circled around as a ringer and landed on the dirt, looking up to the blue.
