Motorcycle

Post by Scattercat » Tue Sep 03, 2013 6:00 am

The streetlights cast shadows as I ride. A man on a motorcycle appears, attenuates, is gone. Another. Another. They race on, splinters of night, flaked from me like chips of flint. They are faster than I; I cannot win.

The sky twinkles, and grows dimmer.

They are stealing the stars, I realize, one by one, riding on tenebrous wheels into the dark between the stars. They will make a universe of shadows, and there they will rule.

There is so little light to begin with.

But I don’t stop. I keep riding.

I can only hope to get home first.

What a great visual image to have in my head before I go to bed. Thanks, Scattercat. That was brilliant.

four horsemen?

cool imagery. Feels like something out of a Judas Priest or Saxon song. In any event, the 4 horsemen is what I thought that is what they were.
