out there

and finally, I’m back:

shoes all laced up,

hair pulled back,

tunes turned on,

nose out in the wind,

breath showing up in the morning air.

it’s time to move on down

the autumnal alleyway

one foot in front of the other.

and, of course, there it is again,

this utmost sense of freedom

and finally, there they are again,

these sweaty armpits.

the only difference to running

before the belly adventure:

an undeniably heavier chest.

but other than that,

it’s a mighty blessing

to be able to run again

and run

and run

and run.
