me on my bike

on my bike
I feel like a boy
testing the myths
of physics
leaning
turning 
faster and 
faster

weight and inertia 
pulling me 
this way and that
until 
something drops
deep inside
like a wet robe

and I feel like a boy
dumb to the wonders
of adulthood
master only of balance
and being easy
to please
