Henry in the Papalote Mountains

Moto Guzzi

Henry’s polishing his Vincent Black Shadow
getting ready for
the Papalote Classic British

motorcycle run
from Papalote to Corpus Christi.
Mr. Bones swears by his BMW

motorcycle, I mean he swears by it.
Cussing up a storm
because it won’t start.

Turns out the battery is dead
and has seen better days
and a new one cost one eighty.

Henry’s scooter does one fifty
at six thousand rpm,
but the cops don’t like it

and Mr. Bones can’t keep up
even with empty saddlebags
and leather birthday suit.
