#PatchitForward: A Poem by Mark

on the road


puncturemark pilder

pull over

smell the flowers

7 minutes to vulcanize

(spread evenly      press firmly)

(inflate to recommended psi)

and you’re on your way    again

back on the road

the road to freedom

freedom from traffic

bus schedules

seasonal timetables

peak-fare two-zone transfers

freedom from carpools full of

stuffy overly-perfumed idle chit chat

freedom found in that

cute little self-contained box of independence

called a patch kitpatches

–it fits–

in the palm of your hand

in your travel plans

-Mark Pilder
