Kid on a Bike (an observation)

20130111-133402.jpg

Spokes turn.
In the beginning…
Whirling, exposed
ribs.
Kicking at them is something
violent.
Foot missing the
kickstand.
It won’t stay
up.
Unruly stand, gets in the way
of movement.
An angry shout.
The wheels still spin.
distraction or defiance
and
a bike begins the descent.
The fall.
Here it comes.
Pavement is the consequence.
Bloodied knees
scraped hands
and dirty tears
run home to find salvation.
And a mercy kiss.
