ADD TO MY FAVORITES
should be writing a poem
a detailed, beautiful little piece
about pollen on the road
and daisy-chains in little girls' hair.
But I cannot write or rant
my brain is on holiday
I ride my bike
to the end of the earth
today I need to pack.
But write I must
I can do it.
<i>Yellow hues of pollen
ride angels wings
surfing the breeze
circling the sun
and plummet to their nasty death on earth.</i>
On earth I can pack my tool kit
first aid kit and coffee percolator
broken spokes need to be replaced
and carburettor needs a cleaning.
But now is the time to poetise
for twelve hundred dollar prize money.
<i>Fingernails through stems
as one daisy links to the next
snowy petals catching the breeze
blond hair in giggling eyes
and it rains and snooty little kids go home.</i>
Because I have to ride
I spent seventy dollars buying food
this better be worth it
still need to print out maps
and book camp sites.
Competition deadline is tomorrow
last year they said I was promising.
<i>Steam rises from rain-soaked street
little children dance in puddles of pollen
cascading golden water over tiny feet
chuckling and singing
then screaming Harley scares them witless.</i>
Bikes, motors and petrol
or kids, petals and pollen?
What should a man do?
Oil or ink,
spark plugs or parchment?
hasta la vista people
EAT MY DUST
<i>of course that's pollen dust.</i>
