paulista cyclists

I think I’m a little bit jealous
Everytime I see these cyclists
Ride carefree down Avenida Paulista.

It’s not because I envy their,
Carbon dioxide reducing acts,
It’s not even because,
Even if I could, Paulista would not be,
My first pick for riding a bicycle…
Or driving a car.

You see,
they’re balancing on less than 5 cm
of width.
And there’s something so daring
about that.
