Power Played Perfection 

September 13, 2015

Diesel engines used on large commercial vessels can be four stories high and produce one hundred thousand horsepower. Nitrous bottles blow v-8 engine power bands well past the normal ranges. Converion kits allow trucks to burn natural gas. But the key to all these platforms of pulsation is knowing precisely when to tap the torque.

———-

Cruise quietly before the dusk of dawn,

Solitude and steady pace ride on-

Light ahead still green; it tarries bright,

Torque moment rips the tacky throttle tight.

—–

Pokey metal pachyderms who steal,

Precious moments; dolts behind their wheels.

Cell phones plastered to their deafened ears,

Passing slot is leveraged smoothly cleared.

—–

Highway myriads a matrix make,

Merging power plays of give and take.

Accordion we move then slow once more

RPMs rev tapestries towards freedom’s shore.
