Flat

days of drinking
with amateurs
waiting for them
to drop out
of conversations
games
& they will tell you
this is
was
the best time
ever
even as you sense
their reluctance
to return
to that empty stool
in any local bar
not that I don’t enjoy this
as it reminds
taking a friend out
on that first motorcycle mile
stinging the eyes
dishevelling their soul
& opening the possibilities
a future open wide
they will sit
excited
begin to think on
their own ride
you know
there will be few takers
who make
the rainy days
that longer haul
between
amateur
& lifer
As:
their
Mums
Girlfriends
Wives
Boyfriends
‘won’t allow me
To have a motorcycle’
