Something I Feared




I was looking through an old notebook (the paper kind) recently.  Some of the things I found, I was happy to see again.  Other things were depressing; still others, interesting.  Then there was this:

Bicycling a County Road on the Plains

My feet turn slow circles.

Twenty-six teeth behind me
I spin like this wind
                      skipping beyond birds

my reflection in silver rims
              pedalling

                       this wind
                                I once feared.
