Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

his friends were finding the enlightenment
that running was not instrumental
but inherent
not a thing that led to something else,
but the destination itself

still he was stuck in an instrumental morass
as fruitful as running after the past

yet when chasing a parking meter
or a runaway paper on a windy day
he could feel it
a snippet
the joy of movement
the feeling of being alive

and on a drizzly morning
the light was coming on
running laps in his neighborhood
he could feel it
he wasn’t going anywhere
