Clark Gormley #5 Bike Lane

not yellow brick
mostly bitumen
painted green in places
to be followed nevertheless

promising safe passage
for pedallers of clean energy
healthy living and those
who just can’t afford a car

although there’s the peril
of opening car doors
that impinge on the lane
to keep you on your toe-clips

and in places unmarked
and poorly signposted
challenging the rider
to not stray from the path

it promises deliverance
on crossing the Pacific Highway
where it magically disappears
sending the rider under a truck
onto a cycleway in the sky
