Sunset

Mosquitoes subsiding
we torque the last nut
air it up
check the pressure
and gently replace the wheel cover.

Drenched in sweat
with bumpy skin having 

satiated the skeeters

we drive off into the sunset
to test our work.

It works!
So do we.

    'Satiated the skeeters' did you? I love that little phrase!...Sounds like you live in the south like me, Nancy...they always seem to get me first for some reason...maybe it's my sweet blood? Love this poem and thank you for including mine as a winner in you contest...sent you a soup mail with info - Tim
