Whoosh – the peloton rounds the curve to the left
the air opening and closing around the group of cyclists
like a huge flock of birds or a school of small fish
all turn at the same moment
then whoosh, whoosh, single riders  
two lost souls struggle to catch up
I stand and watch
an astronomer peering at some distant galaxy
trying to make sense of it all.
