May 30/20: Twelve Riders; 111 kms; 3 hour 32; 655 metres

A great turnout of riders!

Thanks for being at Stinsons this morning. The wind was wicked and so was the company. We hummed down the road quite well; well, I didn’t hum or whistle – had no puff. Out of my league to-day but trying hard. Afterwards, my friend bailey invited me over. She said she had an hour free, no more. But, you know how these things go. Afterwards, she said she really didn’t give a damn. And, now, my head hurts. Fair weather friend, I say.

Life slips away, like dripping water from a kitchen tap, inconsequential but lost forever, like Cinderella’s slipper but with no happy ending.

Some Days

Some days I put the people in their places at the table,
bend their legs at the knees,
if they come with that feature,
and fix them into the tiny wooden chairs.

All afternoon they face one another,
the man in the brown suit,
the woman in the blue dress,
perfectly motionless, perfectly behaved.

But other days, I am the one
who is lifted up by the ribs,
then lowered into the dining room of a dollhouse
to sit with the others at the long table.

Very funny,
but how would you like it
if you never knew from one day to the next
if you were going to spend it

striding around like a vivid god,
your shoulders in the clouds,
or sitting down there amidst the wallpaper,
staring straight ahead with your little plastic face? bc
