She rides her bike in the intense heat

behind a man without a shirt on

She keeps staring at the golden glow of his back

a young Apollo riding the world

How she would like to ride like that

free of encumbrances

the wind cooling her back

people admiring her back’s golden glow

her athletic form

her good practical sense

not a “booby trap,” a “she-devil”

divinely inspirational

an Artemis
