my key turns, a heart.
upright reclining seats
resonant radio, beats.
motor idle whirs
fluids warmed, swirl.
we ride as one
a moonlit, sun.
maneuvering swift curves
our bodies gently, swerve.
we never tire
our palms wet, perspire.
high octane fuel
pistons push, pull.
chromium hubbed wheels
ridged rubber treading, squeals.
exhaled mists dew in condensation
dashboard dials glowing rise, indications.
winding uphill road we climb
windows wide open, unwind.
turns approached with downward shifts
roadway lunging us weightless, dips.
tightened seatbelts hug our lap
crisscrossed tensions snug, relax.
pearly knobbed shift rod climax reaching
top gears now engaged, achieving.
mystical darkness of twilight parted
two hearts race on; in a romance, started.
