Foot off the gas,
Feather the brake,
Rock in my gut.

This comes early in a three-part poem called “Speed Traps”. Driving too fast. Again. Pardoned. Thank you, officer!

This poem cycle is actually about driving a car, not a motorcycle. It’s been many moons since I rode motorcycles. But I still dream, daydream, relive roads/rides.

Update: As of Spring 2015 this has now become a 4-part poem. Yes, pulled over again. I think I need therapy…
