The Only Rule is Don’t Swerve

Hard brake and a quick turn:
these are a few of my desperate things.

Life is a bike ride on icy roads,
and while profits accrue to the 
list makers, the principle-gatherers,
there's only one rule:
don't swerve.

Should your compass
direct a turn,
and be wary,
one with an aversion to 
shattered elbows
will take ease 
and calm
in the arc's face.

Soft smell,
smooth breath,
and a heartbeat 
that the will cannot control.
