sometimes it is better to ride a bicycle than to hop on a bus,
to graze your leg on the chain as you cycle, to close your eyes precariously, to eat the wind.
to ring the bell so that others might see you. to hop off and walk with a friend to cycle on a feverishly steep hill,
let your legs tire, hop off and push your bicycle,decide that it’s too heavy,cry at the thought of the holes in wheels,
kick it and curse at it, when you reach the top, ride downwards while laughing and wiping your face.
