run, too

{just two}

{miles}

cuz it’s all that you
have time for. there are
kids to get to school
and all kinds of morning
urgencies and emergencies
and more.

but first,
run two.
just you.

in the silence of a midnight
sky (now, even the sun shuns
this early hour). in the breeze
of trees that whisper why. in
the sweaty, disheveled manner
of all things only slightly sane.

run two. just to
prove you can, just to inflate
those lungs and breathe all day.
just to say the world is gonna
be
okay.

    I love this tiny little section:
    “but first,
    run two.
    just you.”

    Also this:
    “why. in (whine)
    the sweaty, disheveled manner
    of all things”
