Bicycle Built for Two

It wasn’t the long path
or the narrowness of the way
that kept me close.
It was the bicycle.
While others may have considered
that they might lose sight
of the destination
or be bitten by poisonous
snakes–you know, they have
them in these parts–
I was not inclined to worry.
After all, we traveled fast
Past the flora that was
inching itself ever nearer
the center of the trail.
Oh, moments here and there
made me wonder why
I had agreed to this ride,
but it was you
who so desperately wanted
to try out this bike,
and I figured,
What the heck,
How dangerous could it
possibly be? Oh,
and why am I in front?
