5-speed. home.

– brianprince

it’s been months now. thirteen of them.
moving forward through the land of freedom.

no one questions. but no
one answers
either.

picking up a job here. and there, to
use the Internet. and brush one’s teeth.
making money to pay for haircuts and a
gym membership to 24-hour fitness.

an ungroomed face in the workplace. out-of-control beard.
means creativity except still labeled displaced. weird.
no job today. organizing the trunk. center console. glove box.
and back seat in the La Rioja milk crate-filled back alley.

the bike. one-speed.
on the rack. three-settings.
afixed to the trunk. the home.
5-speed.

late night local.
inhabiting the number
eighteen treadmill.
and shower stall number 1.

no one questions. but no
one answers
either.

heading back home to the 5-speed.
wondering. lost. wanting. thoughts.
a vision. to find.
reverse.
