The Race

CA-2 Highway
Glendale, California

How do sperms speed up towards the egg? I watched a perspective of it right in front of my nose while driving in the rain with a broken wiper. It’s that kind of day when your speed is measured by how fast raindrops in the windshield climb up towards the roof. They look like bubble heads leaving thin water lines as they race on slippery glass.

The fog was thickening now. I slowed down. Red lights flashed in the distance. An accident? Yes! And by the way that’s also what some people call when a sperm reached the egg….
