Like an egg

I went to running
runny legs for runny me
on a toasted orange peel morning
Served on Autumn’s golden tray
From the haze and dayspring hustle
I went chasing fringe and fray
sweet and sweaty for the getting
Bold and ready for “Let’s play!”
In a pulsing rush of runners
In a crowd mad hatters’ call
I went rowing, I went pumping
I went bidding cause for all.
In the glow of aspen autumn
Breathing citrus after glow
In a sea salt wake of seeing
I went blurring the unknown
What it is to be entreated.
What it is to be reeled in.
There I lifted, lunged and counted
to the trip trip tripping sound
black tread millinery for bleeping
With a keeper coach for time
And a stout heart’s willing pealing
I went running on the line
So I bounded on Obediently
Set my feet to Monkly chanting
Til my mind recoiled to ranting
In its seat, it went recanting
One two three four,
Four three two
I went running
Running running
a Millennial wanting more
I stayed on there in the knowing
in the moment worse for worn
So I dug in more headstrong
and I dove in quite headlong
as my feet kept their sing song
kept their cleat in pun pun pinging
Then I dove and swam from streaming
to a soft down witness seat
Where I watched in object leaning
that sad suffering physical me
Ever conscious
Ever patient
More determined there was she
While I soaked in all her paining
I was cheering reverently
Yes I cheered and I small gestured
til quite frazzled and quite hoarse
Which was really very-tricky
From a buzz less chakra source
From a quiet throat core center
My soul loved her to the end
On a runny egg yolk mourning
She was there just like a friend.
