body awake – mind ticking
wear tear – walk talk
energy burned – reserves working
sermons served – pace slowing
man woman – last standing

desire dyed with twice-stomped-on matches and rocky-cadence roads
we’re the sons and daughters of ultramarathon runners
and cactuses are too cucumbersome to care for outside
the desert

listen to your favorite song for the rest of your life
and you will strangle yourself with the first gifted excuse

sleep tonight – sleep tomorrow

there are endurance caverns underneath my eyes
not worth exploring nor hoarding ferried treasures

faded light – staggering night
binge eating – hunger strike
