ah, a, the communion,
I made my first.

42 pounds and bought a bike
communing with the handlebars
communicating with the wheels
on common ground
in the park, where else?

I’ll never forget the taste and it sticking to the roof of my mouth
shaking hands with the thumbless
peace be with you
the body of christ
on a bike
flying along
the business!

the first and the last
and a few in between

a la carte, is what it’s called
the first shall be last?

cattle licks

cattle licks first, cattle licks last
cattle licks living in the past
