Baiku

riding through small town
rocket ship on some guy's lawn
mine flys on pavement

despite best effort
summer turns fall turns winter
patience, wait for spring

something in back squeaks
when idling at a red light
nuts must be tightened

pneumatic front fork
pneumatic seat and rear shocks
to air is human

cast iron wheel no spoke
fuel-injected has no choke
technophobe in hell

riding thunder iron
storm traffic invisible
blessed underpass

river is low but
in spring the water rises
I wouldn't park there
