Peloton

a cosy peloton –
one cyclist breaks,
spectators
on the verges cheer,

a zoom,
the peloton
s-t-r-e-t-ch-es;
now a sausage
inching up
a mountain,

the leaders
can be caught,
those on the verges
cheer like geese,
and clap clap clap,
hoping for
an unexpected
win while commentator
experts express doubt.
