This Morning

The chilled morning air raises goose bumps up high
As a "V" of their name's sake honk overhead.
Fingers start numbing and each eye bleeds a tear
As I pedal through the cold that most people dread.

And I ride...

Beautifully written, but all I can think about is, "He gets to be in the *cold*?!?" We're going to cool down about 8 degrees over the next few days... to a balmy 93... before we go back up. C'mon late summer/early summer (you know that period between sweltering and blistering that happens twice a year here in the desert).

Yeah, it was in the 40's at my house this morning. It was great.

I'm so freaking jealous, haha.
