The one that got away
To the orange Peugeot folder with the wicker basket parked outside the pool yesterday,
the purple Peugeot folder that sailed past my balcony some months back,
the green Raleigh that whizzed past in the same direction the very next day,
to the unidentified shopper that was nearly stacked by its uninitiated rider (new to back pedal brakes she said) outside my garden fence,
to the sky blue Malvern Star with white trimmings that I didn’t have the heart to chase down one stinking hot day last summer,
and to all the little lovelies who have eluded my camera…
this one’s for you.
