For biker scribe Eddie β€˜Sorez’ Pliska, poetry is as much about capturing his passion for the moto lifestyle and the raw energy of two-wheeled travel in prose, as it is about documenting determination in the face of the often-harsh struggles of life. He has had his fair share of both.

Here is Sorez's exclusive September piece, a triptych of poems titled The Pen, The Wind and The Road ... a glimpse into the heart and mind of a biker poet.

Sorez, a contributing writer for Outlaw Biker Magazine who also has a popular book of poetry out, graciously pens some inspiration for the NYC Motorcyclist community each month. You can read more about Sorez in a feature NYC Motorcyclist published in the spring of 2018.


Unintended consequence
Decades of ink flowed
Left a skid-mark on the road
Thoughts conveyed
Through pen upon paper
Rhyming miles, tales were told
Not everything made sense
Sometimes you would have to
Read in between the lines


The breath of my mistress
Inviting and enticing
Sweet whispers in my ears
As I head towards my ride
Fire it up and head on out
Onto the highway of life
Cruising steady at seventy-five
Into the winds embrace


The only place I have found
Upon this dirt called earth
Where in the midst of chaos
I can be completely confident
Twisting the throttle hard
Around every single cager
That tries to take me down
Always on the lookout
Trying to survive the ride

Eddie β€˜Sorez’ Pliska
