A marathon is not enough for you.
You shun most courses, saying they’re too short,
and run fifty-mile races, coming through
in under-seven-minute times.  Your sport
is like your heart:  fixed on a distant mark,
some far-off finish line, some nameless goal.
You left me in the distance, in the dark,
puzzled to watch you sprint away your soul.

David W. Landrum
