It's almost dusk and I am jogging
slow like I'm 38 
with no business doing this

but I jog to feel it like I'm 9
with no other business But this!

See it's the pace I get wrong

start too fast, burn out too fast
start too slow, wanna burn it all off at the end
with none left for the return

yet here I am 
casual-steady at first 
focused determination later:

gut empty, muscles eating sugars, mind emptying
thoughts into breath into blessings given back
as emotional words of    - Thanks.


It's dusk and I am counting-off push-ups
slow like I am 38 with all the experience
on pacing these:

each one 
a water droplet born flat until gravity,
until the descending decision 
when the chest is first,
the shoulder blades once spread
begin to contract & pinch together 

the body lower, lower
and like a droplet severing its ties
so does the body fall consciously
reckless like a tear

which fall in sets of 30.

Full of metaphorical physicality. Pleasant to read and easily understood.
