Ode to My Wheels

hey there, beautiful eyes!
gorgeous, giant, round
ringed by rubber eyeliner
joined by steel tubes
are you silently
winking at me
calling me
seducing me yet again?

you spin backwards
counter-clockwise in
invisible sockets
dialing back my years
you roll forwards
chasing adventures
pursuing discovery

your spokes are
two sets of eyelashes,
fluttering at me
two circles of blades,
slicing banality
two silent choirs,
singing through the air

my humble,
beautiful wheels
eyes of happiness
gateway to my soul
I couldn’t live without you

– Paul Raworth Bennett
