You could have a big dipper   

Yesterday’s Business by Chad W. Lutz



we dangled

legs over

the canyon


& swore

we’d never

do this again


the waiting

the watching


the sitting back

& letting the world

have its way


we

wanted

to be part

of the action


renegades

as a matter

of fact


broken bottles

& raised fists


high school diplomas

& college degrees


we’re what

our five-year-old

selves would want


pushing

the pedals

that bring us

medals


you think

I just woke up

this way?
