Tour 2010: Stage 4 (2)

Mark Cavendish won six stages at last year’s Tour. With four stages complete, he’s still waiting for his first victory in 2010. Everyone, including Cav himself, expected it to come today. But it was not to be.

SO NEAR…

Passing under
The red kite
He has just
One thousand metres
And one team-mate
Ahead of him.

Too far
And too few
For the man
Who thought it was his.

He looks down
Then sits up
Sees the Italian’s two-arm salute

And the little splinter of doubt
Digs in
Deeper.
