aimless

linear path, timed, i face the marathon,
a pawn in the game
taking some moments of my life
walking it, running it, but not at my own pace
to surpass my limitations but keep them bottled within
a few minutes or even better – seconds
to say that i win
against others, the way i chose to run
the meters or miles “for fun”
shooting the gun, i smelled the smoke
running through the air, bleeding milk
across the sunlight, my shoes bite down
surroundings melt, my mind on an aimless flight
