The Ride

Just a little thing I thought up today. Let me know  what you think! Thanks!! :-)

The Ride

I think that I think
more than most people normally do.
My thoughts cycle through my brain
as if they were written on flaps of paper
taped to the spokes of a bike,
like I used to do with play cards
as a young kid,
except now I’m on an unending bike ride.

Occasionally I get to take a break
from this ride and shackle
up my bike for a bit.

I take a seat in a local coffee shop,
put on my headphones,
slowly sip straight coffee, and watch
all the people inside and outside
and wonder what kind of thoughts
are taped to their bicycles.

  1. I remember that little flap of paper -- almost like I wanted to grow up and spread my presence with that sound around.. I can just imagine what I would write on that piece of paper.
