OLYMPIC YEAR
(7/18/16)


I'm
behind him
in traffic

he's driving
some Jeep
utility vehicle

a high dollar
bicycle
in the rear
bike rack

kayak strapped
to the luggage…
kayak rack
on top
I guess

13.1

26.2

70.3

140.6

stickers
on his rear
window

a license
plate frame
that says

"my other car
is a unicycle"

inside
I see
an assortment
of gear

wheels

paddles

items
heretofore
unknown
to me

he's
a very active
guy

or at least
very active
to display
an extreme level
of activity

I am not
impressed

because
right now

my dusty
old car

with its
cracked
windshield

very few
contents

no advertisements
whatsoever

and the
apparently
underused body
of its driver

sits behind
the same
stoplight

as Mr.
Triathlon
