Premiere

Preface

Walking into the night, I move to the silver silhouette

and feel the ice cold chill as metal meets skin.

Stepping in the saddle,

I push the pedals and ride through the empty streets.

Everything is still.

The frantic daytime activity grinds to a halt

as if frozen by the darkness.

Leaving just man, cycle and the following shadows.
