Morning Run

Running along the path

there appears to be no escape

companion is rambling

distracting from the landscape

The path is long

hangry as I run

enclosed in a mental cage

no longer having fun

Running faster

companion catching up

seeing a food station

anxiety about to letup

Grabbing a sandwich

and a drink

sitting down for a second

trying to think

Companion still

getting on my nerves

looking ahead

to where the path swerves

Reaching the curve

companion still talking

throwing him in the water

and then continue walking

Never fear

he knows how to swim

knows me well

accustomed to acts on a whim

Companion catches up

he enjoyed the race

the water is cool and relaxing

it was worth the chase
