Freewheeling down the Port Hills
after a morning with you,
I feel the fetters fall away.
Nothing can impede my jouissance
as I overtake a cautious braker,
passing effortlessly around metaphors,
indicators dancing in the dappled daylight.
My world has become ripe with promise,
fat with the flowering of a future fantastic.
I feel a rightness deep in my core,
deeper than any intellect can dive.
