Ran against you then was jostled
The moment I touched you we grew apart
I repeated checking the sense of
being here with you
then just forgot

I ran the used way
and sometimes felt so down-at-heel
under the night sky

I reared up leaving you behind
Faster, higher, stronger
Became alone for a moment
Feeling so high, so low

Drawn to gravity
or centripetal force again,
I’m wandering on surface gasping
looking for an exit
