Random Poem:

The Motorcyclist
boothben

accelerating till suspended,
 1
a quicktime ghost-flight
 2
through one-light towns,
 3
a presence only intended
 4
to slip in and out of scenes,
 5
brushed here and there
 6
with worn out leather,
 7
old boots, torn jeans,
 8
and wind blown hair
 9
 
 
his hoss runs hotter
 10
and screams at whip-quick
 11
flicks of his wrist
 12
fueling even faster
 13
the rocket-ride infusion
 14
of speed that finally resides,
 15
burning in his veins until
 16
exploding into seclusion
 17
he rides
 18
 
 
shifted, now transcended
 19
into silent surroundings
 20
where peaceful vibrations
 21
have easily commanded
 22
the last worried second
 23
into a timeless trance
 24
floating on a highway blur...
 25
even past this instant
 26
this heavenly glance
 27
