Red head thrust forth
As if to sweep in the whole,
Ears back in the breeze,
Hair dancing like leaves in autumn's farewell,
Lips flapping like wrinkled,
Such unencumbered happiness!
Torso balanced by stiffened elbows
Holding tight to the window ledge,
A climber clinging to a narrow projection,
Pummeled at every toss of the gale,
Poised in the moment.
This is the revelation of what it means
To take a ride!
This is the glory of endless now.
This is the dance of the road.
This is my dog!
