The dishwasher hums with cyclical rhythm

and somewhere your feet are pumping at the same cadence

returning to me.

Water sloshes around the sealed box, cleaning,

and somewhere you are salty with wet, sipping Gater-aid

to get through kilometer eighty.

The kitchen dishes are washing

your pedals are turning

and I am waiting for your salty kisses.

  1. Nice! Great poem, Shaun. I love the ending! 🙂

  2. Yours will be the first eyes he sees, once across the finish line.
