The white bike

Someone left a 10 speed bike near my neighborhood. Just sitting there painted in white and clearly out of place. I don’t know how it got there but I was astounded that the same bike was still there 3 days later. There’s still some good in the world. Nobody had stolen it, nobody touched it. Someone even walked by on day 2 and propped it against a tree. As if to say, “Here, you left your bike.” Nobody came to claim it though. This morning I saw the same bike lying on the ground. It looked sad and lonely… with both of its tires now missing.
