Poem: Joy Ride 

after two years
living far apart
feeling his father
beside him, gripping
the bicycle seat
picking up speed
he looks back
over his shoulder

his father stands
thirty feet behind
waving at him
the boy yelps
zig zags, recovers
keeps himself upright
turns the bike
to wobble back

his father’s arms
grab him tight
the bike rolls
out and away
as his father
whirls him around
