2020-09-24 – Quitter’s Race

these days..
i’m a magnet for
miracles..

maligned,

thus
undeserved,

the lump of coal in sock
of a marathon
runner,

at moment before
race’s collapse,

intent’s to keep
the smoking spokes
‘neath a tired
form

from crashing
relapse.

++++

track pounded too
hard and fast
now..

to notice time
sprinting
past.

..with its shortcuts stealthily mapped.

so? we finish last.. first prize is just more track.
