About This Poem

Besought of honors durst

Besought of honors durst on edge to live
what cometh through insights and traction's hold
the wrought not to deny or to misgive
hence thither's naught to doubt in mountain's cold.

Above the limits race where speed defines
what pre-existed on the drives and pikes 
betrothal wraith among all deaths consigns
and sacrificial power chords she strikes.

Therefore the strenuous of engine's wrath
unfolds trajectories of epic drive
tangential dance upon demanding path
his hands on peau volant, race-concert thrive.

How tall a man should be on sovereign roads 
that challenge souls impertinent to rave
on sacrificial offering that goads
third fate's lithe dancing steps atop his grave?

Untamed the turbocharged propulsion roars,
the engine hollers its titanic torque,
celestial ticket bought in skies to soar
Dom Pérignon is his champagne's last cork.

Intruder of the mountain's nightly gale
the peak performing turbocharger breathes
combustion thrusts the engine to travail
how glory turns mechanical and wreathes!

It's after midnight and the slope's romance  
redeems red droplets on his uniforme
his slight of smile exceeds the ambulance
since ten to one besought, killed in the storm.

    This poem brought to mind thoughts of James Dean. Because of how he loved to drive fast and live on the edge, almost defying death. This was an excellent poem for the "epic" contest, especially with words like "titanic". It was very deserving of the top spot! Congratulations to you, as well. I am honored to share first place with you!
