Fourth Place Award David S. Pointer

Fast Riding Emily

Like a pro circuit cycle
rider, or a Cheyenne
dog soldier on a red
road Harley, I would
prowl through asphalt
eternity to find you and
when my chrome kick-
stand comes down-
abrazos y me besas
(hug and kiss me)
until the last love letter
of our coupled lives
is written alive into
our eyes, bright as
(a Valentines Card)
una tarjeta de San
Valentin from my
lips to your inner
light over a saddle
bag bottle of stars
or divine Chianti
rolling and writing
for higher ground
