My husband bought me a motorcycle today
with the idea that we can pack our things
into tidy bundles, rev up motors,
already having found someone to love,
and leave the pandemic behind.
We plan to outrace the upcoming
hotspot of our present-day existence,
when we zoom off into a blazing
saddles' prairie sunset.
