Swedish Heroes and Crescent Bikes

A poem for the Swedish Heroes

Swedish Heroes dream of Orange Crescents in their youth and old age. After University and more importantly after they get their first paycheck they scour newspapers to find an original model with Reynolds 531 tubing. From blue balconies born of the Folkhemmet they sip coffee and think of riding to the coast by way of Malmö. Empty shipyards and forgotten clumps of grass guide their way
