The Red Bike

Posted January 26, 2011 & filed under Notebook.

is red

like Mars, like lava

in a hot volcano,

is old, like a

Grandpa’s gray hair

on the floor of a barber shop,

is deflated,

like an old car tire,

like its own tires,

is beat up, like a

fighter after a long hard

fight or a favorite pair of

sneakers no longer nice and bright.
