“Heather”

I will never for­get my first time on a bike. It was with this biker babysit­ter I liked. Tat­toos on her arms, a beau­ti­ful face, long flow­ing hair and a Coke bot­tle shape. On a hot sunny day she pulled in the drive, and told me “hop on we’re taking a ride.” I mounted the chop­per, held on to her tight, as we sped off I smiled in de­light. I en­joyed every curve on her and the road, I was so ex­cited I thought I would ex­plode. Thirty years later, the high­way’s my home. I broke laws, broke hearts, speed lim­its, and bones. And at the roar of my en­gine, I still get a rush, ’Cause the love of my life all be­gan with a crush. I have a big beard, the tat­toos, my leather, and a rea­son why my bikes are al­ways named Heather. —Ti­mothy J. Mooney
