Energized: Emotional ABCs

The ABCs of Emotion: Energized

Coiled power springs
spikes bloodΒ with adrenaline
rush of energy

Pedal to metal
roar down freeway, hair flying
black banner in wind

Thighs squeeze the red ducati as I swerve
wheel bumps onto sidewalk, lean hard to right
swing around an outdoor cafe called Verve.
My kind of place, snag a menu and bite
of lunch from that waiter with the slicked back
hair–uh-oh, my mirror shows him dialing.
Cell phone to his ear and a sneer that smacks
of envy contorts his face into a thing
best left in nightmares as I carreen round
a bend, heart thumping, blood zinging, crackle
of energy rushes from spine to ground.
It shakes the street; I avoid a tackle
by zipping across an intersection
horns honk, cars skid, saved by fuel injection.

Energy bottled
sold to ignorant shoppers
makes me laugh out loud.

Everyone should have
aΒ coiled spring vibrating
making energy.

    1. Thank you! πŸ™‚ I wonder the same thing. I have never needed “energy” in a bottle. I am one of those high-energy people. Food for me is like rocket fuel in a jet fighter. Forget caffeine. if I ingest even a little, I can’t sleep.


      1. I’ve cut way back on caffeine (no longer drink it daily), which wasn’t a deliberate effort–and I haven’t noticed any ill effects, so now I know I don’t really need it like I used to think πŸ™‚
