Legs

Legs burn muscle

over hills and byways

highways stretching on the horizon

teeming with cars

hell-bent on winning, the race

the race of human want

want that crashes, without brakes

still, I beat the road

pounding legs on shoe rubber lanes

racing the clock

to stay in the game

gridlock metal that knows

no shame

refusing to budge, I remain

leg muscled highway

drive through wind and rain

all steel and rubber

screeching in pain

the race of human want

futile gain.

Did you know I could stay here all day?

Did you know I could stay here all day?

writing and wasting away

words keep coming

releasing a gorge

an orgy of thumping

dancing syllables surge

playing on my tongue, jumping in my head

begging to display

Did you know I could stay here all day?

I love this feeling, intensity and healing

pleasing my body with luscious-ness

reeling, bleeding from my mouth to this page

Did you know I could stay here all day?

penning and pining, bated breath reclining, waiting

for something to say

it’s night-time now, but time is out-of-place

when images are flying, bouncing from space to grace this

page alive, with such disgrace

emboldened, completely burning away

Did you know I could stay here all day?
