Racing: Off the line

The diesel engine revs

as he pushes closer to the line.

She sits excitedly,

waiting for the flag to drop.

Red to green,  go!

NASCAR-style shifting for her

while his transmission does the work.

Faster off the line and at 1/4 mile.

Hooray!

Maybe next time he’d win,

had he known

we were racing.

~~~

Namaste.
