Angel For A Pillion

At 90mph balancing
cross winds
both sides of the highway
riding together
I felt you there
wrapped lightly around me
like some invisible thread
in my head

I was talking to you
in old familiar tongues
overcoming the odds
of everything
that stood in our way
unaware
of my transmission failure
slowing down

slowing down

slowing down

slowing down

then a CLUNK,
the “oh no”
your wings opened
gliding us to shelter

disembarking
by the curb
you stroked my arm
just carry on
your spirit said
believing conceiving
as light in your eyes
illuminated
the road ahead.
