Monday, November 17, 2008: The Gentleman Biker, Milan

In transportation, speed directly correlates
To civility and grace. The faster the pace,
The fewer breaths I take, the more removed I am
From the morning crowds (or individuals,
If I am on foot). The other day, I saw
A man in a suit standing upright, pitched forward
And whirring stiffly like a podium in motion.
Nice segueway, a woman called, and darted off the curb.


  1. Random question: Did you ever study acting? You are so great at creating character. Love the "podium in motion."

  2. I wish you could have heard the sound of delight I just uttered: an elated sigh.

    (my word verification is "chinese"—that's wacky.

  3. Thank you so much for writing as often as you do. It is a (daily) pleasure to read your words. Besos from Uruguay!
