Running

Poem By Spotted Dog

As I run this road today, I feel:

Bone, muscle, blood, mind
All working as one.
To run through ruts,
Tapping into the instincts;
Loving to let this
Eerily restless emotion recede.

on that ship to Patras.
Myself, I was drunk with travel,
a boy of seventeen with the wide world before him.

The Mile

Stand there, on that starting line
Shivery, slick with sweat, legs wound tight like springs
A thundering shot echoes,
Stolen steps, a slight shove, a steely resolve:
