US Pro Cycling Championship

the pros
were lining up at the gate,
orange, blue, yellow and brown kits,
their cleats clicking on pavement.
shaved muscular legs, reflective sunglasses
perched on helmets, they looked so cool,
we did our job of clapping and cheering
until their feet left the ground, the wheels
turned and they were gone so quickly,
so quietly.
