More Tests…

In the predawn darkness on a cool October morning,

I sit and wonder,

Will there be a call to the front row,

Will the pedal click in on the first go,

Will the legs respond, the cerebellum too,

Peace, not chaos, perhaps,

It doesn’t matter,

Really?

Telll that to the rumblings of the mind, the stare,

the stomach churn, the shakiness of uncaffeinated hands,

It does matter,

A little,

Not just watching, going racing,

More tests,

It’s OK,

There will be hugs, and grins,

and in two days, real life again,

Surely, this is good.
