Alternative transportation. Des

Brand-new BMX
Dad worked hard for you,
shiny and sticker’d,
bright paint, grease and glue.

Not allowed on curbs?
No bicycle lanes?
Give way! SUV!
God forbid it rains.

Oh, white elephant,
bought with blood, sweat, tears.
To get from A to –
in twenty odd years.

They say it’s easy
to exercise your new-car-smell-freedom
– like riding a bike.
