The High Road and Holy One

So Red
So rare
Consider the chromium steel
Crafted by the Sublime Hand
Consider the sensuous lines
The master Artisan undulating in
The throes of one cataclysmic orgasm
One perfect creation

Oh High Road and Holy One
Never before have the streets
Known one such as this
Mechanized Messiah
Incomplete in stillness
A frozen dancer aching to move
 to glide
Fulfilled only when plying
 the sacred ways
Singing praise and worship
In the hymn of the Infernal Combustion Engine
