Winding Road

The poem "Winding Road" was written in response to a 2 a.m. motorcycle ride taken from the heart of the city on back roads up into the mountains at the end of a cocktail shift. The driver and rider spontaneously connected a few times for late night motorcycle journeys over the period of a couple months, without ever knowing more of the other.  The experience speaks to a time of youth, adrenaline, encounters and adventure.
