When Times Races–a pantoum by H. Marie Aragón

When Time Races

Robot-guided surgery at Mayo’s in October – an athlete’s destiny
Such demands on your body require down time
The fully loaded Cobra Jet Mustang must be built
Ready for the SEMA show in Las Vegas by November

Such demands on your body require down time
My silver haired racer, we’re not so young any more
Ready for the SEMA show in Las Vegas by November
I can’t compete with enhanced features, a legacy of power

My silver haired racer, we’re not so young any more
Unleashed muscle and performance – racecar triumph
I can’t compete with enhanced features, a legacy of power
“When this rat race is over, we’ll get back to us,” echoes in my mind

Unleashed muscle and performance – racecar triumph!
Holidays in Santa Fe – so little time together
“When this rat race is over, we’ll get back to us,” echoes in my mind
Together at Ten Thousands Waves, we relax after a massage

Holidays in Santa Fe – so little time together
January blizzards extend across the country – you’re stranded in
Milwaukee
Alone at Ten Thousands Waves, we relax after a massage
A long distance relationship with a racecar lover requires stamina

January blizzards extend across the country – you’re stranded in
Milwaukee
Robot guided surgery at Mayo’s in October – an athlete’s destiny
A long distance relationship with a racecar lover requires stamina
The fully loaded Cobra Jet Mustang must be built
