Whoever thought you could find such freedom
hidden in a steel cage?
The wind yelling in your ears?
The unearthly-
******* roar of the engine?

Speeding up to make a vain attempt
to catch your breath.
Scream your ecstasy
into the blurred images.

And all at once,
a heartbeat stops as the brakes squeal.
****** about
in and out
of your seat so fast
you get whiplash.

But the ache you feel later
reminds you of the pleasure of the chase.
