divide

Salida
Pie Town
Brush Mountain Lodge
the basin
Antelope Wells
chances are small
I’ll ever have a burger
or fix a flat
in any of these places
but I ride a line
through the mountains
every year
climbing and descending
with a host of
disembodied voices and
a collection of blue dots

1 July 2013
Auburn, AL

Today’s poem is inspired by the Tour Divide mountain bike race and the call-ins on MTBCast.
