Bicycle

 

Multi-pointed metal star, turns in grease and chain

An unlocked sprocket in an unfroze socket,

The bicycle a simple key, with insulated overshoes

Survives the snow, the forty-six below, even

Bicycles will travel so,

 

Unlocked steel circles spin from spokes, flying freewheels

Built on berings, glide and turn of magic,

Crankshaft cranks bipedal rotate,

Frame is thin incision in a white-out,  

Cuts slender concrete tracks, to separate the snow

Unlocked tires metal whirlpools, stiffly swirl two miles, six,

Even bicycles will travel so,

 

Gyro-scopic, gizmo-tropic, eco-delic,

Unlocked a bicycle will travel  

Two miles, six miles in the distance, an

Any-key and all-tool, greater unlocks winter

The mechanics of a bicycle do even that.
