Contained Fire

From Melissa Pierson:

The brake pads close like a vice on the front disk. The bike is heavy and is unbalanced at rest, waiting for the human to help it become its true self. With a push of a button, the engine fires and there is contained fire only inches from the riders knees. With a twist of the throttle, the bike launches and becomes as stable as stone. On the road, you can look at your shadow chasing you. A moving portrait in the medium of light and asphalt.
