For MR (who goes to work by kayak)

No longer locked in shiny spheres that rumble-role in soothing speed too closely packed on lazy tar like beads confined upon a string I feel the water freely flow My paddle tips reach for the sky The land two ribbons by my side No roaring engine leads the way The water-flow starts at my door It drifts away through the lagoon One day I'll join it to the bay and out beyond the Golden Gate
