Two-Stroke Engine

Whether a groaning is heard or not
it floats truly out from
an ordinary two-stroke engine
that goes a long way
in keeping a life dynamic
from zero to infinite
extending and contracting
its two pistons together to give and take
the ever-wanted fuel of life
for driving it in top-gear
on a single lane of ever-increasing longings
taking and bearing
all the prevailing risks and uncertainties
to reach a destination or a drain.
