on the A7 out of Alicant

heading towards Valencia

sun shining

decent grip on the road

the world is all ok today

& here he comes

head down on his hondyamkwakazuki

eyes scanning the traffic

for false moves

sudden lane changes

this is what I see

& what he doesn’t see

is his senorita

holding him for dear life

perched like a capuchin baby

high on his back

eyes shut

flickering them open

then shutting tight shut again

the fear in them

as she mouths her prayers

as he makes his next overtake

she must be all

of five feet nothing

in cropped jeans leather jacket

holding on to her man

trusting in god & him

such is

life in the fast lane

on the A7 out of Alicant to Valencia
