bike

when the darkness is long and hot,

unrack the bike.

slip out and make a little breeze

for yourself.

ride alongside rabbits

who run away from the woods.

just try it:

you may see an owl.

you may feel your heart

pounding, if you ride quickly,

and opening up after so long

shut tight against the world.

and then —

with your heart pounding and opening

and the night brushing

softly upon your face — oh, then

what shall I do?
