Friday, February 13, 2009: On the Street….Leather & Track, Milano

Let me tell you the difference
Between a sprinter and
A cross-country runner.

Both are fast, sure,
But their bodies before they run
Are poised for different battles.

One’s body strains, adjusts,
A car’s tires shifting,
Backing into a space.

These exact movements
Preempt explosion. The other
Runner’s body melts,

Ready to absorb distance.
An arrow held and loosed,
Soaring steady, straight.
