Steering Precision

Written by: Karen Deeks



For years I've hugged a dream
Not a very lady-like one
But then again
Who said, I am a lady?
Not me!

I want a pile of rustic junk
A few bicycles
A perambulator
A pile of wood
Nails plus aged string
So that I may finally set about
Creating
My favourite thing!

There is no need for long drawn 
out plans
Blueprint, mentally stored
Dare I say?
Yes! I'm good with my hands

The item of my affection
My ultimate dream
Building a go-cart for deep 
gradient
Screams

Of joy, exhilaration
Still on the back burner
But anticipation
With dogged OCD
Knowing myself and the core of 
me

One day when I'm even older 
than I already am
I'll relish the disassembling
Of one ancient pram
To create my most desired of 
visions
A go-cart with side brakes
And steering precision
