The light fixed to the handle bar
As useful as the other lights in a box
Back home. Each one saved with thought
That it will be used for parts to repair
Other lights taken apart but left I am sure
In haste, an excuse to go to the bike store
Asking questions about lights but really just
Gazing at new bikes and frames without rust.
I leave after the hand has gone round the clock
Guilt fumbles my hands I am peeved taking off the old light
That just needed batteries which I have to buy, right?
I place the old one in the box hoping to redeem my frivolity
With the ideas of great creativity
