2017.07.23 The Best Thing Ever

The Best Thing Ever

It’s your first bike
with training wheels
—a trike—
near divine
You are assured
—and reassured—

You can’t tip over.

You pedal slowly
one foot at a time
up and down, then
 upanddown
and up again
fast, faster…….

You don’t tip over

Pretty soon
your legs move so fast
they spin
with the wheels
—whirlwinds—
the spokes and you
 together.

You won’t tip over.

No one can even see that
there are wheels there
—five altogether—
You are flying
flying
—flying—

You’ll never tip over.
