2 Days Until Release

Only two days until Not Your Average Sonnet is available for purchase on Amazon. It’s so close I can feel it in my sphincter. Wait, that’s not right. Bones. I can feel it in my bones. That’s how the saying goes, right?

This particular poem was gifted to me by the biker crew which shows up at the cafe every weekend. Some things in life are difficult to make fun of. You really have to search for something. This, however, is not one of those things.


The Bikers

They pedal in with hardened heads      robust

in glare       defined in calves without regard

designer spandex to enhance the thrust

of overworked thighs shred of any lard

patella tendons saved, unlike those dumb

runners keen on sabotaging their knees

and scampering until both feet are numb

their silly string limbs ephemeral like cheese.


The bikers, though     they’ve got it right    their glut

of muscle maturating every day

until ratio of quad to butt

is perfectly aligned, so when cars stray

into the bike lane, they will have to beg

for mercy from the almighty leg.
