Have you ever peddled a bicycle using only one leg?

It’s kind of like that.

A lot of times, though, it’s mostly peddling up hill. So much so, in fact, that when you reach an even surface, or more rarely a down hill one, you’ve been going up hill so long and you’re so thrilled that you’re not right at this instance, that you don’t notice you’re still only peddling with one leg.

It’s kind of like that.

But no matter whether you’re going up, down or flat, you can’t stop pedaling because you’ll fall over, which can’t ever happen because it’s not just you on the bike, and there are more bikes behind you, so no matter what, you pedal.

It’s kind of like that, too.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
