The Motorcyclist

One evening, while sitting lost in thought
beside a small fire
                     under summer constellations,
I heard a motorcyclist racing on
a far-off country road
                       as if pursuing
something of great importance.

What could it be?
Why does he rush into the dark
with such intensity?

Could I be losing some fleet thing of value
as I sit motionless
beside this dying fire,
                          musing on
the swift descent of night?
