Moto GP, Estoril

Snapsmile, snarling pack

Of keening, raw-red-energy

Dragonets flying on

Challenge-tense banner-wings;

Leaning against friend-warm

Edges of rainbow drops,

Tight-bank competition-life rings.

 

In some calmer future

Kings and saints

May stand for something:

But not this fine,

Brimstone-balance day.

Race?

Whistle, flag or gun;

Throw, ride, swim, run:

Every colour,

Five rings,

Three steps –

Drama, tension, grace –

The true human race!
