Once you’ve learned to write a bike, you never forget

Even before you learn to go around
and
around
and then
back around again
you have to fall
scrape your knees
bruise your bum
bleed a little
bleed a lot
but you get back in the saddle
again and again

and dammit

yes, again, again
hoping there’ll be less blood
until you learn to ride a bike in a cul de sac.
