Manhole Covers

“Our excitement grew over these metal objects we’d never noticed
before. We’d stepped on them, ridden across them, listened to
them clank when trucks drove over them in the street. But now,
examining the covers around us, we saw that the designs were
distinctive, the logos picturesque, the iron surfaces resplendent
with the burnish of past decades.”
