Things Found On The Highway

A bolt falls out on the ground
The car moves on
A spring rattles loose
Clinks quietly on the highway
Black smoke billows out the back
The engine sputters to a halt
The driver gets out
Lifts up the hood
Steam rolls out the headers
The startled driver jumps back
Away from the searing heat    
Falls head over heels off the road
Breaks his neck against a rock
The socket wrench clatters to the ground
Without a sound


Prompt: A bolt, A rusty spring, and a 8mm socket
