Sports Day

Afterwards you came to me

and asked

'Why did you slow down

before the end?'

I had not realised

I had

 

The blue glass sky

bled us sweat-dry

and lurking

in the corner

always the eyes

the eyes

 

Inside all was madness

and crushed teal ice

for all of us

my mind's stalled

back in time

for what?

 

I could not shed

the cloak of air

I'd want to be

stretched offcentre

there stay content

until the bell

 

Years since, I'm changed

yet the same

I still run at night

chased by this air

feet dragging

in cold water

whatever
