short pants in spring

When I was 13
me and McGinnis took off
on the CB 100
amping through the dip in Berry Ave

making a right
our weight reigned in
through sheer thrill
gripping the waist of high centered fear
drifted off
then closing a fast book
my right knee was ground down
yanking up and over to the left
we made these knees even

nigh no knee nerves for
years
One day
in grew
long, sensational and true
two knee beards
who today gladly greet you.
