October 17th


It was overcast and drizzling.

I hummed 99 Luftballoons
As I rode my ten-speed
Through impish puddles
On my way home from the gym.

It was like being 10.

Impatient cars raced by.
I peddled slowly,

Savoring the scent of sullen streets,

And progressed
To singing out the song,

I knew German.
