a lost race (cherita)

© Clr ’14 Ghost Bike – Montreal


at the break of dawn
beware of the traffic

cycling through the viaduct
competing for space
a cyclist lost the race


loss of a cyclist

a sister mourns her sister
a mother mourns her daughter

a city of cyclists and citizens
form a vigil for Mathilde Blais
a ghost bike hung in memory
