The two of you

[This poem was first published on The Monoshock Blog on 19th Oct, 2007]

Hot, humid and grimy
Bright, soothing and pristine

Accelerate, lean and brake incessantly
Men can have multiple orgasms too

A dirty ragged boy by the tarmac
An old soul behind young naughty eyes

One analog and filthy petrol pump
One stop less for another 400 kilometres

Some lonesome trees in an arid landscape
A little water in a lake of fire

There stands an ageing prostitute
Someone’s loving mother

A puncture repairer in the middle of nowhere
God’s son himself

Two roads start up right ahead
But you knew all your life which one to take

There are always the two of you
The one that rides is somehow more true
