I am the youngest in my family.
My sisters tell me what to do.
Going to make a tramp bike
Everyone come listen to this. I’ve got a story to tell you like you’ve never heard before.
I was just 13 years old and I was going to school in Sydney, Australia.
Sometimes Mum would pick me up after school, sometimes I’d catch the bus but my Dad never picked me up.
But on this particular day it was Dad who came.
When I got out of class and had walked to the exit gate, he was there waiting for me as if it was perfectly normal.
“Hi Dad,” I said and punched him on the arm like I always did..
“G’day sunshine,” he responded, and punched me on the arm like he always did. Just then a stranger in a black suit came up to me. He was wearing dark sunglasses and a white tie.
“He looks like he’s from the movie MIB,” I thought.
“I hear you interested in traveling at near the speed of light,” he said, his voice a Keanu Reeves husky bass.
The first stretch will be vertical
rumbly, loud and bad
but I will have noise cancellation
in my ergonomic pilot’s seat.
I won’t hear the car explode
but you will.
Ravishing, dazzling scents
making people feel blessed
Bees buzzing collecting pollen
