the rusted link in the chain,
the loose jockey wheel,
the snagged cable housing.
They're the flu just when training is going the best ever,
the tire iron that fell outta the bag,
the season-old ClifBar,
the thinning of favorite shorts.
They're the bar tape that's dirty,
the ding in the saddle that's no longer in production,
the falling-off at the base of the climb,
the cleat that's loose.
- Bag *sigh*
