    Near midnight
    24 degrees
    Here I am walking
    Walking beats thinking
    Walking beats talking
    With each step
    I stomp on something…
    Someone
    Sometime it’s a memory
    An event I wish to ground into the concrete
    Perhaps a face I’ve never seen
    I walk until it disappears
    The cold air will freeze it
    Then it will crumble
    Beneath the rubber soles of overpriced running shoes
    The wind-chill freezes a tear on its way down my face
    I’m walking

    Walking not to understand
    To understand one must think
    I’d rather walk than think
    I quicken the pace
    My heart beats faster
    A cardio benefit
    Sneaking in on my misery
    I didn’t ask for any positives

    A two-mile walk against the wind
    A formidable resistance
    But I slash right through
    I don’t want to think about anything
    Therefore, I have more walking to do
    Perhaps another mile
    Filled with “F-its” and “Whatever’s”
    By the time I get back home
    I’ll have it all together
    ****
    Now I must try to go to sleep

    BE
