March Towards a Future

It is election time, not in Ukraine, but back in the United States where Nancy is registered as an “Independent.”
Her absentee ballot lay open on the table. The typed names on the crisp white pages are like actors on an obscure Hollywood script for a political drama.
Nancy slowly flattens the creases out of a used sheet of aluminum foil beside the ballot as she reads through the names.
Aluminum foil is hard to come by in Ukraine, and this piece, as soon as she finished, is as good as new.
“Which one of these presidential candidates would flatten out a piece of aluminum foil and reuse it?” she asks herself. There was only one, she thought. She fills in the circle beside the name of Ralph Nader and casts her vote.
