Jacking
By Bart Vogelzang

Jack on. Jack off. Jack on.
Loose nuts.
Spent rubber.
Endless memories of roads traveled,
Adventures experienced, and, always,
Home.

Jack off. Jack on. Jack off.
New rim. New rubber.
Tight nuts.
Endless anticipation of roads to travel,
New adventure, and, always,
Home.

Jack on. Jack off. Jack on.
Roads rough. Roads smooth.
Soaring heights. Deep depressions.
Punctures. Tracks. Sleepless nights.
Hopes. Fears. And, always,
Sweet home.
