Flashing, My Beast


Moonclad,
my Beast and I
roar the night awake.

He has metal,
horsepower,
a lamp;
handles well
riding hard…

He shares all with me,
and we flash the night,
make the dark blush bright
red, like my Beast’s tail
light.

  11. Been many places on my breast...er, beast whose real name is Flex (e.g., Flexible) and we ride "up nowath" in summers--skipping this summer.

    Fav time to ride--night. Usually saw us, Flex and me, as moon-bathed or -drenched!
    MOON-CLAD it's gonna be.

    I cannot read you any more b/c I get all these strange ideas...like your def of insanity. Sure sounds familiar. OH! My remaining character defect is I write way too lengthy comments. WHEW! (sigh!)
