Ron n Mollie
January 15 2009
Okay, so he had a rice burner-
Long before the days of huge Honda’s,
Kawi’s w/ vtwins- you get it.
I used to (sorta) kid him by asking
Him to park her behind
So none of my pals’d think
I’d lost it. My mind that is.
He’d named her Mollie
And my favorite Aunt’s name is
So I used that to justify even being seen
With that machine and him.
He was one of the most interesting
Men I have met- even to this day-
An RN, carpenter, photographer, steam train
You name it-Ron did it.
It’s been about 10 years now
And I am either getting older
Or, more accepting of
it isn’t what you
But that you ride.
And he rode (all 6 foot 6 of him)-
In 6 degree ice stormy New England
Winters, in 90 degree egg-frying on the road
Summers. After 12 hour shifts in
What ever hospital he worked at.
He rode. He just rode.
He and Mollie rode, as one.
I used to think it was kinda
Funny to name a bike-
Thought that was a girlie thing
We do with our first cages or mini-vans-
And then they rode off into the sunset. Gone.
I miss them both.
