Day Break Run

Posted: June 30, 2015 in free verse

The joggers jog but can hardly walk
with Ace bandages pulled tight
arms high, shoulders bent forward
and shoes scuffing the asphalt

Men’s shirts eschew and women’s tits bouncing.
asses bound tight in light yoga pants
and men in their Lycra compression shorts.
For god’s sake man, get a jock..

Pumping the heart, watching the pulse
and breathing at least 20 times a minute
Don’t forget to breathe and
Very important, keep the heart beating
Please remember that.
Especially while you are in front of my house.


  1. HA! So, you don’t want to have to give some jogger dude mouth-to-mouth in your front yard?! 😉 😛
    GREAT poem! Good word pics, J! I can see and hear the joggers! Glad I can’t smell them! And sorry I can’t feel them or taste them! 😉 😀 Did I just say that out loud?!
    All of my young adult kids jog/run and do marathons and other runs.
    I contribute with gifts of running clothes. And I’ve watched and cheered at finish lines.
    HUGS!!! 🙂
