The First Ten

We finish each other’s

sentences and laugh,

choosing to ignore, as we always have,

the warnings of reason.

Keep a steady pace. Listen to your body.

Avoid unnecessary stress.

As if they were ever our mantras.

 

So we tired and cramped

stopping sometimes – desperate for

breath, we retched,

clung to

each other’s strength

paused when we needed to stretch

but never let go of each other’s legs.
